"The editors represent both the founding generation and contemporary leadership, and the contributors they have enlisted include most of the active voices in the humanistic movement. I know of no better source for either insiders or outsiders to grasp what humanistic psychology is about."

"The chapters assembled in this volume show the exuberant variety of applications of the humanistic perspective and the way in which these follow from previous insghts into the nature of human beings, from those of Nietzsche, James, and Kierkegaard to those of Camus, Vigotsky, and Fellini. There is no question that, now more than ever, we will need the insights into psychology that the humanistic perspective can provide."
Claremont Graduate University
"As a humanist it offered me a breadth I had not known existed, as a researcher it offered me an excellent statement of in depth research procedures to get closer to human experience, as a practitioner it offered me inspiration. For all those who work with and explore the human experience, you can not afford to miss the voice of the third force so excellently conveyed in this comprehensive coverage of its unique view of human possibility and how to harness it."
Leslie S. Greenburg
