This volume makes a powerful case for the inclusion of ultimate concerns - spiritual and religious themes in personal strivings - in an attempt to build a motivational theory of personality. The book first reviews the growing body of empirical and clinical literature on goal seeking and its relationship to subjective well-being, life satisfaction, and personality description. Emmons then sets forth an innovative framework for the assessment and measurement of ultimate concerns.
