About the Book

The writer presents a mosaic integration of scientific and philosophical papers that have long characterized his work. The storms of campus life, especially during the Viet Nam era; the increasingly obtuse LYING in society, at all levels; the apparent insensitiveness in handling peoples; the increase in violence and inappropriate machine technology, and the moral and ethical problems increasing in contemporaneous societies have been the driving forces originating his spirit of inquiry. There is a clear effort to reconcile and integrate teachings of orthodox Western religious thought in harmony with the fundamental discipline which underlies the ethics and moral obligations of life in the East. For him the phrase "cultural exchange" is more than mere salon like association. Individuals from different races discern the reflected illumination of other cultures within their own Self-Being. Such reflected light is integrated forming a new WHOLENESS and shines forth in an understanding of true worth. It is in this way that international persons should behave, he believes.

First Sentence

CHAPTER I; I am aware that the title MAN AND MU of this collection of musings is an allegory rather than description of a philosophic discussion. In fact the title is a catachrestical metaphor for reflections long on mind and only lately difficultly put forth. Given to contemplation I do not doubt that such images as I raise derive in part from many years of life spent in company of men devoted to the accumulation of verifiable knowledge. Some of these scientists I admired deeply and some were like bubbles sinking into the water of their deluge, floating up and down awhile, then to disappear. Some too I found who sought understanding of Jeremy Taylor's divine "extraordinaries of God" who once found is apt "to supply the defect of all natural and human possibilities", and others I saw who despised the role of Providence and the communion of saints.
