    1. Excellent study of the root of many of our modern psychological, social, and spiritual problems, which the author describes as a form of narcissism Sugerman is also very acute on the parallels between modern psychology and the various religious traditions of the East and West Highly recommended for readers interested in a the possibilities of blending psychology with philosophy and theology, in the spirit of the late Owen Barfield.
