Ego and Soul by John Carroll
Book DescriptionMuch of what people do today disguises a desperate search for meaning, the result of the crisis of belief that has become the West's major problem. This substantially revised edition of Ego and Soul tackles this underlying reality head-on. It examines main areas of modern life including work, sport, intimacy, shopping, tourism, computers, and a retreat into nature, to discover what is driving people, and what sense they are making of their lives. Ego and Soul also looks at high culture, the upper middle-class elites and the universities, tracing why they have lost their way, failing to provide a language that might help a new understanding.
