Abstract: 

Teachers have begun to use the term 'spiritual intelligence' in their educational discourse. Is it correct to consider spirituality as a form of intelligence? This paper explores whether the existence of such intelligence is plausible, by initially discussing the notion of spiritual experience as a mechanism for problem solving, one of the central themes that underlies the concept of intelligence. Then, the author examines the functions of some of the neural sites of the human brain that have been found to be active in those who have had spiritual experiences. In the light of this discussion, it is argued that although some reservation remains in considering spirituality as a form of intelligence, the concept itself may nonetheless be rendered as plausible.
