This study examines the meaning and the importance of spirituality in the well elderly who reside in their own homes and the significant spiritual experience that they encounter through relationships, religion, and services. Qualitative Research Methodology was incorporated in this study to help explore and interpret the research in order to uncover the importance and significance of spirituality on the daily lives of the well elderly. Twenty participants were invited and ten participated in an unstructured interview and were surveyed and asked to respond to a list of questions pertaining to the role of spirituality in their everyday lives. The results were collected via interview transcription, grouped into the respective themes and categories, and carefully evaluated. The study analyzed the extent to which the Meaning of Life and Connection and Meaning of Spirituality is found to be an important and necessary part of a well elderly person's daily life. The findings in the study identified major significance of spirituality in the participants who considered the most important factor, second most important factor, and third most important factor when it came to relationships, religion, and services. The results also indicated aspects related to the horizontal dimension and vertical dimension. The openness of each participant facilitated the gathering and interpretation of the data for the study. The outcome clearly identifies the importance spirituality plays in the daily life of the well elderly and indicates the significance of spirituality throughout the life span. The results indicated that regardless of a person's family history, educational background, or religious upbringing, spirituality played a certain role in their daily lives and that there is a powerful influential spiritual force that guides them during periods when they may be lonely, or suffering from a feeling of being isolated from the outside world. Each participant was aware of the significance of spirituality and the important role it plays in their life in the present and across the life span. The elderly felt that they had knowledge of various modalities and how spirituality plays a principal role in a spectrum of real-life practices including prayer, helping others, or just staying in tune with the beauty of the world around them.

Tests of significance have been a key tool in the research kit of behavioral scientists for nearly fifty years, but their widespread and uncritical use has recently led to a rising volume of controversy about their usefulness. This book gathers the central papers in this continuing debate, brings the issues into clear focus, points out practical problems and philosophical pitfalls involved in using the tests, and provides a benchmark from which further analysis can proceed. The papers deal with some of the basic philosophy of science, mathematical and statistical assumptions connected with significance tests and the problems of the interpretation of test results, but the work is essentially non-technical in its emphasis. The collection succeeds in raising a variety of questions about the value of the tests; taken together, the questions present a strong case for vital reform in test use, if not for their total abandonment in research. The book is designed for practicing researchers-those not extensively trained in mathematics and statistics that must nevertheless regularly decide if and how tests of significance are to be used-and for those training for research. While controversy has been centered in sociology and psychology, and the book will be especially useful to researchers and students in those fields, its importance is great across the spectrum of the scientific disciplines in which statistical procedures are essential-notably political science, economics, and the other social sciences, education, and many biological fields as well. Denton E. Morrison is professor, Department of Sociology, Michigan State University. Ramon E. Henkel is associate professor emeritus, Department of Sociology University of Maryland. He teaches as part of the graduate faculty.

This hugely influential work marked a turning point in US history and culture, arguing that the nation’s expansion into the Great West was directly linked to its unique spirit: a rugged individualism forged at the juncture between civilization and wilderness, which – for better or worse – lies at the heart of American identity today. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Significance should serve well a reader who has loved deeply. It is an uncompromising, beautiful book. The book may be read as an intellectual autobiography, as a love story, for wisdom on music and on telling stories, and as a resolution of the problem of evil. We've enclosed the table of contents below. It is always both rare and deeply satisfying to find a book written by someone who has touched what is true. It is with great pleasure that we present the first combined edition of Mr. Kimpel's work. Contents Collected Polemics In Praise of Another's Work On Telling Stories A Story A Reluctant Character From the Tale of the Last Unicorn An Afterword: On Being a Christian A Letter (in response to a reader) In the Forest A Brief Comparison of The Iceman Cometh and The Golden Key Priorities On the Limits of Psychology About Truth On Kindness A Letter (in response to a sermon) Criticism of Another's Work Perspective Restating the Argument Once Again Letters (to C. Stephen Evans) 12/7/91 (sent 8/1/93) 6/26/94 4/23/96 Notes Discussion Q & A Practical Reminders Endnotes Bibliography Significance is a compilation of Mr. Kimpel's earlier books: On Telling Stories, Collected Polemics, Notes, and Letters. These books were published in numbered, limited, Harrold Press first editions in 1986, 1990, 1997, and 1997. The books were written over a twenty-one year period. Reviews From a reader at Amazon: I would have assumed that a book on "the meaning of life" would be either a spoof or the work of a fool. It's probably fitting, therefore, that I find myself with the task of writing a review of Significance. There are no words for the task. Genuine authority is a rare thing. Find it here.
