This book grows out of a seminar that I taught of the same name. It seeks to examine the best and worst aspects of human nature. It argues for the importance of personal growth, yet recognizes that many of the worst aspects of humanity have their roots in programs of human improvement. The book takes the perspective that personal growth cannot be pursued in isolation, but that individual growth leads to involvement at the community and global levels. Increased self-awareness leads to greater community- and global-awareness.
