The phenomenal success of The Return to Religion presupposes a readymade reading public for The Rediscovery of Man. The earlier book was not strictly confined to religion, in the popular definition, but was concerned more broadly with problems of personality. This book takes the subject of personality out of the confines of modern psychology and hands it back to the individual for analysis and challenge. Here is first of all, a book for those who are confident that they hold the control over the development of their own powers; second for those who need just this impetus to a realization of that control; and third to those who pooh-pooh the strictures of modern psychology on man's own powers -- and who need arguments to support their position. A different type of self help book, and popular in subject and presentation.
