KIRKUS REVIEW

A Professor of Psychiatry at McGill, Dr. Cameron combines psychology and personal philosophy on a discussion of 20th century living, many of the restrictive concepts in conflict with present-day change and complexity. The theory of pattern living, which may free you from routine, but cannot be carried to the extreme of jeopardizing individual independence. The things we want and the cultural code which bars their attainment; anxiety and guilt; concepts of good and evil; the new social inventions, institutions which have replaced the old; the myths which weaken, inhibit and frustrate us; senescence; work- and the changes in work attitudes; the struggle between radical and reactionary forces...A reasonable, liberal interpretation of the moralities and motives which influence our lives, which at all times relates the individual to society.
