Synopses & Reviews
A radical new exploration of the human need for meaning and values.
At the beginning of the 20th century, as psychologists discovered ways and means to measure intelligence, Aristotle's definition of man as "a rational animal" developed into an obsession with IQ. In the mid 1990's, Daniel Goleman popularized research into emotional intelligence, EQ. Now, in the twenty-first century, there is growing evidence that a third "Q" exists-"SQ," or Spiritual Intelligence.
SQ is our most fundamental intelligence. It is what we use to develop our capacity for meaning, vision and value. It allows us to dream and to strive. It underlies the things we believe in and the role our beliefs and values play in the actions that we take. Spiritual Intelligence explores how accessing our SQ helps us to live up to our potential for better, more satisfying lives.
