KIRKUS REVIEW

By a Professor of Philosophy at Boston University, these essays have been addressed primarily to a younger audience- and give a clarification of the ""problems of sex, love and marriage as part of the total search for value in life"". From a discussion of petting, its causes and consequences, this follows through to the sexual relationship and the reasons for premarital abstinence, and finally marriage as the only satisfactory solution if a ""congruent pattern of values"" obtains. Motivated not by morality per se, but by a practical understanding of social and personal factors, this is a sympathetic and persuasive presentation of a cardinal cause of conflict.
