Book Two covers “Man and his Emotions” (psychoses, neuroses, power and security seekers, the alienated, the religious and the whole man), as seen in the work of Freud, Wm. Blake, D. H. Lawrence, Erickson, Dostoyevsky, Plato, Descartes, Pavlov, Kafka, Cicero, Leibniz, Nietzsche, Alfred Adler, St. Augustine, Reik, Henry James, Jung and others.—The selections are judicious and stimulating.
