The concept of human identity or who we really are has perplexed thinkers in all ages. Currently psychologists have shunned discussing this topic since it is an area that is incapable of being objectified or accurately defined. Yet the lack of self-knowledge is the problem of all problems. Due to such a lack we, for the most part, lead lives fraught with illusions, superficialities, and economic woes. This book is about how we can know our real selves or our genuine identity. It is the author's considered belief that we are all far greater than what we think we are, and the more we know about ourselves, the better we will be able, not only to make the most of life, but also to solve effectively social, economic, and political problems related to such areas as crime, poverty, competition, capitalism, individualism, freedom, and democracy, as well as war and peace. The viewpoint presented in this book is that, without a thorough understanding of who we are, no meaningful social reform can ever materialize. The author, a psychologist and teacher, breaks new ground in the field of understanding human identity and human problems. The guidance offered should be of capital interest to those who seek in life something deeper than the mere surface, something more than what is promoted by the zeitgeist of recent centuries and materialistic culture. The book is a valuable resource to readers aiming to enhance their capacity to know themselves and find their path in life.
