Abstract

This essay proposes that what makes spirituality a distinct academic discipline is the methodological principle of „critical interiority.‰ Interiority is the foundation of consciousness, reflectivity, and agency, which in turn are the moving forces of the human person‚s innate directionality toward the fullness of life. Critical appropriation of interiority is essential to discernment of one‚s own and others‚ spiritual choices. The author finds grounds for this methodological principle in contemplative traditions, Lonergan‚s work on method, and postmodern philosophy.
