The Sociology of Mysticism

Mike Sosteric

The paper underlines the significance of mystical experience, gives reasons for the sociological neglect, offers guidance on operationalising mystical experience, and provides a blueprint for research and analysis moving forward. While the paper makes a strong case for sociological investigation into this arguably important aspect of human spirituality, the paper also issues a warning against the development
of mystocentrism.
