Three articles offer insight into life transitions: (1) Joel Lefever’s paper describes the discovery of twice-exceptionality; (2) William Green and Kathleen Noble discuss the development of spiritual intelligence; (3) Michael Davis explains his model for a transition of the mind.
Three articles, a response, and a rejoinder use Dabrowski’s theory of positive disintegration as a framework. Lawrence Nixon addresses individual identity and union with the absolute. In an autoethnography, Jane Piirto illuminates the interplay of the personal and the objective in the research process. Michael Piechowski adds his side to the story. Piirto then provides a rejoinder to his comments. Alena Treat uses a unique research technique called photovoice to illustrate emotional intensity. Finally, poetry provides it own lens into human emotion and life transitions.
