Transpersonal Research Methods for the Social Sciences : Honoring Human Experience Paperback / softback

Edited by William Braud


`A landmark book which will surely remain the standard text in the area for many years to come, and in doing so will lend invaluable impetus to the continuing development of the subject and to its wider acceptance within the social sciences' - Transpersonal Psychology ReviewThere is no shortage of research methods that are easily applied to the study of everyday human experience.

How, though, does one attempt to study extraordinary human experiences - ultimate values and meanings, peak experiences, transcendence and heightened awareness, among others.

William Braud and Rosemarie Anderson introduce a series of transpersonal research methods that are intended to help researchers develop new ways of knowing and methods of inquiry.

While these methods will be of particular interest to researchers in transpersonal psychology, humanistic psychology, or transpersonal studies applied to traditional fields, the authors argue that these approaches - with their emphasis on developing intuition, empathy and self-awareness - can benefit anyone involved in the research enterprise across many disciplines.
