Abstract

This paper suggests that the nuclear age requires us to reinvent our thinking as the "spiritual" project of out time. Reinvention is discussed as the need to restore thinking to its human context through the power of metaphor, image, and story, in order to "see" what we are doing in this world. Psychology and religion alike contribute to this "spiritual" coming of age by recognizing that our symbols are our own creation and responsibility.
