Phenomenological Inquiry in Psychology is the best introduction available to Transpersonal-Phenomenological psychology, a new field that seeks to develop an awareness of the existential and transpersonal dimensions of human experience. Chapter highlights include -- essential sections of Rolf von Eckartsberg's landmark text on existential-phenomenological research -- an investigation of the lived experiences of persons with Multiple Personality (Dissociative) Disorder, a first in phenomenological research, and -- three studies, each examining an aspect of the experience of dying, another first for the field. This groundbreaking work will be of particular value to readers interested in all areas of humanistic psychology, theology, and the philosophy of science.
