Advances in the Psychology of Eastern Religions

The past decade has seen a significant increase in cultural diversity within the psychology of religion. This diversity manifests in the examination of non-Christian religions and their adherents, as well as in scholarly contributions from researchers based outside of the traditional strongholds of North America and Europe. Given the serious concerns regarding cultural bias in the psychology of religion literature, these are positive developments for the field, especially when combining trends towards cross-cultural work and multi-lab collaborations.

Despite these advances, the psychology of Eastern religions is still relatively underdeveloped. A PsycINFO search for journal articles examining Christians and Christianity yields nearly 70,000 results. Similar searches for Buddhism, Hinduism, and Daoism yield less than 10,000 results each. It is clear that a profound imbalance remains in spite of efforts to make psychological science less “WEIRD”: Western, Educated, Industrialised, Rich, and Democratic.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to showcase recent advances in the psychology of Buddhism, Hinduism, Daoism, and other Eastern religious and spiritual traditions. The scope of contribution is broad: research examining the psychological and behavioural consequences of Eastern religious belief and affiliation is welcome, as contributions examining the inter-religious replicability of key findings derived from Western Christian populations. Contributions from research psychologists working in East, South, and Southeast Asia are particularly welcome. Due date for submissions is 30 April 2020.
