Feeling and Imagination: The Vibrant Flux of Our Existence
This book is a humanistic inquiry into the nature of feeling, with particular emphasis upon the way that imagination, idealization, consummation, and the aesthetic contribute not only to the texture of our experience but also to the values that are generated by means of them. Love, sex, and compassion are studied as modes of attachment that human beings create, very often as the outcome of prior failures in their personal relations.
