The chapters outline the causes and results of significant dilemmas of poverty, cognitive ideology, education, morality, and human creativity with which progressive thinkers struggle in attempting solutions to our major social problems. The analyses are in-depth and systematically involved to include thorough coverage of all primary psycho-social energies that produce functional and dysfunctional ways of living. Contents: Understanding the 'Basics' of Human Growth and Development; Poverty, Crime and Drug Abuse; The Role of Education in Society Today; Peace and International Conflict; Morality and Religion; The Future and Human Creativity.

Industry Reviews

Dr. Eldridge's book articulates the ontological realm of human existence which distinguishes human faculties from those of animals. It challanges religion and science to bring about creative solutions to the destructive elements of civilization--poverty, war, inequalitiy, and so on. He enlists the pro-active role of education in cultivation and conscientization of our minds.--Daniel B. Lee, Loyola University of Chicago School of Social Work.
