Spirituality in Society and the Professions

Laszlo Zsolnai and Bernadette Flanagan’s paper “Spirituality in Society and the Professions” was published in The Routledge International Handbook of Spirituality in Society and the Professions (edited by Laszlo Zsolnai and Bernadette Flanagan, 2019, New York, Routledge, pp. 3–4).

The paper emphasizes that new approaches and models are emerging for the professions working in different societal fields, including religion, psychology, philosophy, theology, ecology, agriculture, water, landscape and urban planning, tourism, medicine, psychological counseling, sociological work, nursing, sport, health, economics and business, management, leadership, politics, law, policing, science, architecture, technology and design, fashion, literature, visual arts, music, theatre, film, dancing, martial arts, media, and education. Arising from these developments the paper illustrates how professions can gain a good deal in insight and humanity by embracing spirituality in their working models and functioning.
