This book explores an ongoing process of self-change of the sort we all engage in at one time or another in our lives, either needing or wanting to become “someone other that ourselves,” an ambition that seems impossibly self-contradictory. Yet it happens over and over in the human universe, making it possible both for individuals and societies to improve themselves over time, instead of remaining captive to attitudes, values and behaviors that are no longer productive, are even dysfunctional. It is a story that celebrates the hopefulness that such transformations both depend on and inspire. PDF here and paperback via Amazon.com.
