RLK, the only non pseudo - scientific item that you’ve produced in this thread is the link to Baumeister’s research; which does not fit into your concept of “pneumatology”.
Of course I agree that—though the word is older than psychology—pneumatology, like theology, is still at the philosophy stage. I have no problem accepting that theology and pneumatology are about questions having to do with the whyand meaning of things—the kind philosophers like to ask. Scientists, as Baumeister puts its, get involved answering questions having to do with the how of things.
The thread, as I indicated in my first post, was started with Baumeister’s book in mind. The book is: WILLPOWER—Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength (2011). It was given to me for Christmas, 2011 by my three very perceptive grandchildren—then 16, 20, & 23. I read it and underlined it as soon as I could; and I have been studying it ever since. If someone else had published this kind of information—as one who was born an inquirer—does anyone think that I would have wasted time making mean-spirited and demeaning remarks?
No way! In my closing post to this thread, I prefer to ask questions like: Where are, and who are, the enthusiastic inquirers at CFI? MA, I am saddened that you and others, at CFI, have chosen to express so little interest in this new science and say that
...this thread belongs in the Pseudoscience sub - forum.
In the light of the facts listed in the following link—
http://www.ideafit.com/library/how-to-strengthen-willpower-part-1 —those I found by my personal experiences and those I found in my search for other links, I am having lots of fun using WILLpower to further the rediscovery of “the Greatest Human Strength” which the ancient Greeks called agape—the highest and moral good for all of us, without any negative-emotions and other such limiting conditions.
