The Lucile P. Morrison Lectures given during 1961 to 1964 under the sponsorship of the Western Behavioral Sciences Institute in La Jolla, Calif, were edited for this volume by Richard E. Farson, the institute's director. These lectures were given by some of our most brilliant scholars. Gardner Murphy, Carl Rogers, Aldous Huxley, Abraham Maslow, Sigmund Koch, Theodore Newcomb, S. I. Hayakawa, Ernest Hilgard, Ralph Gerard, Gordon Allport, Charles Osgood, Herbert Kelman, Harold Taylor, and Jack Gibb make up the list. The content ranges from prologue to epilogue, from art to science, and from inner experience to management of human affairs. Usually the trouble with books of this sort is that the subject matter is held together only by the fact that the essays had a common sponsor and were presented at the same place. This volume, however, has one rather exceptional feature: It has a message.
