چکیده

دین‌داری و معنویت همواره از بحث‌های چالش‌برانگیز در محافل دین‌پژوهی بوده‌اند؛ مقالة حاضر با رویکردی جامعه‌شناختی به بررسی نقش دین‌داری و معنویت در فعالیت‌های اجتماعی سالخوردگان می‌پردازد. مبنای کار این مقاله مطالعه‌ای است که به تبیین و تحلیل تحقیقی می‌پردازد که توسط یک مؤسسة تحقیقاتی در دانشگاه کالیفرنیا انجام شده ‌است. در این مطالعة طولانی‌مدتِ جامعه‌شناختی (مطالعة طولی)، میزان، کیفیت و عوامل مؤثر در افزایش دین‌داری و معنویت در گروهی از آمریکاییان در خلال چند دهه از عمرشان مورد بررسی قرار گرفته است. بررسی الگوهای دین‌داری و معنویت در بزرگسالی و ارتباط آنها با کارکرد اجتماعی در کهن‌سالی از محورهای اصلی این مطالعه بود.
