This was excellent. I started out loving it, though it got a bit dry around the middle. Each chapter is essentially a different essay by Rogers, so my enjoyment varied per chapter. I found the last chapter, The World and the Person of Tomorrow, to be particularly moving. ( )

Di questo piacevole libro di Rogers salvo tre saggi (quattro, anche l'ultimo, a dire il vero).
Di respiro ampio, parla di massimi sistemi mantenendo l'umilta' dell'Eterno Ricercatore. Per una persona over-70 è ammirevole.
A margine, i gruppi brasileiri da 800 persone devono essere stati qualcosa di irripetibile nella storia dell'umanità. ( )

A Way of Being was written in the early 1980s, near the end of Carl Rogers's career, and serves as a coda to his classic On Becoming a Person. More personal and philosophical than his earlier writings, it traces his professional and personal development and ends with a person-centered prophecy, in which he predicts a future changing in the direction of more humaneness. Now, fifteen years later, the psychiatrist and best-selling author Dr. Irvin Yalom revisits A Way of Being, offering a contemporary view of this remarkable work. ( )

A profound and deeply personal collection of essays by renowned psychologist Carl Rogers

 

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement and father of client-centered therapy, based his life's work on his fundamental belief in the human potential for growth. A Way of Being was written in the early 1980s, near the end of Carl Rogers's career, and serves as a coda to his classic On Becoming a Person. More philosophical than his earlier writings, it traces his professional and personal development and ends with a prophetic call for a more humane future.
