Introduction: Robert C. Solomon and the Spiritual Passions

Sophia 50 (2):239-245 (2011)
Abstract
Robert C. Solomon saw spirituality and emotion as interpenetrating themes. I will summarize his views on spirituality and then introduce the articles in the special issue in his honor. Relating emotional integrity to spirituality, Bob argues that it is precisely through engagement - throwing ourselves into relationships and endeavors - that we come to recognize ourselves as part of something much larger than ourselves. Spirituality is an on-going adventure according to Bob, and it recommends itself in the way that all adventures do. It is exciting and fun, a matter of an overflowing passionate life
