These traits include obsessions with food and sex, addiction to pleasure, excessive rationality and a tendency to focus on the negative. A University of Chicago psychology professor, the author also believes we must free our minds of cultural illusions such as ethnocentric superiority or identification with one's possessions. He urges readers to find ways to reduce the oppression, exploitation and inequality that are woven into the fabric of society. Further, he wants us to control the direction of human evolution by pursuing challenging activities that lead to greater complexity while opposting chaos and conformity. Each chapter concludes with self-help questions and mental exercises designed to help readers apply the insights of this literate manifesto to their daily lives.

From Library Journal This title aims to provide 'a deeper understanding of the direction in which life on earth has been going, and hence a clearer sense of what the meaning of one's own life might be. The author believes that becoming an active, conscious part of the evolutionary process can give our lives meaning and joy. In fact, the fate of humanity in the next millennium depends on the kind of selves we become today. An interesting feature of this book is the space provided at the end of each chapter for readers to jot down their thoughts about the issues covered, though libraries might find this problematic. Csikszentmihalyi goes beyond the psychobabble and traces human behavior from the beginning of time and shows with great clarity why we do the things we do. Most general readers may find it too 'deep.' Recommended for libraries with a solid psychology collection. - Belinda J. Pugh, Kings Bay Base Lib., Ga. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Booklist At least since John Donne, perceptive writers have sensed a cultural crisis created through the displacement of religion by modern science. Csikszentmihalyi sees danger in this crisis, but he also sees the opportunity for a liberating new synthesis of philosophic traditions. Electric and capacious, this synthesis draws from Confucius, Domenici, and Huxley as it opens possibilities for transcending human limits previously defined by evolutionary biology and cultural orthodoxy. The primal dissatisfaction with life that seems inherent in humankind can spur us to create a new self in harmony with an unfolding cosmos, not hemmed in by genetic laws or traditional values. The provocative questions at the end of each chapter demand of the reader active collaboration, not merely passive receptivity. Even many readers who reflect the author's optimistic pantheism will find fresh insights into our contemporary discontents. Bryce Christensen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
