Roberto Assagioli was one of the masters of modern psychology in the linethat runs from Sigmund Freud through C. G. Jung and Abraham Maslow.Himself a colleague of all these men, Assagioli was among the pioneers of psychoanalysis in Italy, though he pointed out that Freud had largely neglectedthe higher;reaches of human nature.Over many years until his death in 1974 Dr. Assagioli developed acomprehensive psychology known as psychosynthesis.Psycho-synthesis sees man as tending naturally toward harmony within
himself and with the world. Dr. Assagioli's concept of the will is a key part of that vision. Penguin Books also publishes Roberto Assagioli's
