“A splendid statement of the historical development of psychology.”—New Republic

"Provocative, penetrating, altogether worth reading."—
Contemporary Psychology

A distinguished psychologist outlines here the need for a psychology of becoming, of the growth and development of personality that he says "can best be discovered by looking within ourselves." Modern psychology is in a dilemma, Allpost states, for it has trimmed down the image of man as a free democractic being. He appraises the present state of the psychology of personality and indicates its relevance to human welfare and religion.

This volume is based on the Terry Lectures, which the author delivered at Yale University in 1954.
