PP Dordrecht; Boston YR 1979 SN 9027709858 9789027709851 9027709696 9789027709691 AB Originally entitled Osoba i Czyn and published in Poland in 1969, The Acting Person is the official English translation and has been thoroughly edited and revised with the collaboration of the author. The book stresses that man must ceaselessly unravel his mysteries and strive for a new and more mature expression of his nature. The author sees this expression as an emphasis on the significance of the individual living in community and on the person in the process of performing an action. The author states in his preface that he has tried to face the major issues concerning life, nature, and the existence of man directly as they present themselves to man in his struggles to survive while maintaining the dignity of a human being, but who is torn apart between his all too limited condition and his highest aspirations to set himself free. --From publisher's description.
