KIRKUS REVIEW

Again the author of Search for a Self, Courage for Crisis, etc. translates into popular terms a practical to philosophical pursuit of self understanding, and manages to avoid the commonplaces of many books in the field. Relating the individual to the world in which he lives, this evaluates our ""sense of personal worth"", discusses in the first part what it means to take part in a changing culture, our powers and limitations, our cultural ignorance, our responses to authority, our habit formations; in the second part, our five links with the world,- communication, creative effort, work, love, social involvement; and lastly, our self-defenses, self deceptions which make us human and our acquisition of a personal philosophy...With perceptive psychological insight, this provides beneficial, contemplative counsel.
