This presentation will discuss how formal axiology can make sense of three significant stages of spiritual/ethical development that have been of great interest to religious thinkers for centuries--Worldliness, Dogmatism, and Saintliness. Most users of the HVP or its derivatives work mainly with how personal developments in the Extrinsic, Systemic, and Intrinsic value and evaluational dimensions relate to job performance, but this discussion will expand their horizons to include spirituality and morality. The three character types are extreme cases of over-development in one value dimension and underdevelopment in the other two, explained with many historical and present day religious illustrations and applications. Similar individuals who are not quite so extreme will be inclined in these directions. The religious/ethical issues discussed should be of great interest also to those who do not use the HVP.

Rem B. Edwards, Ph.D is a Lindsay Young Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN. He is a Charter Member and Fellow of the Robert S. Hartman Institute for Formal and Applied Axiology and served on its Board of Directors from 1987 to 2013, Emeritus member thereafter. In 1989 he became its Secretary/Treasurer; after October of 2007, he continued as its Secretary until October, 2009. You can find all of his published articles here.
