Self-Individualization of Life Bringing to Fruition the Ideal for a New Epoch
  • Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 49)

Bewildered humanity is challenged to seek by a need to find new ways to assess gains and losses and make socio-economic and cultural adjustments and resolve political and religious conflicts.
