Abstract:

The central theme is the human individual and his worth. If the dignity of persons is to be sustained against the array of depersonalizing forces in modern technological civilization, it is essential that belief in the sanctity of the individual be more than a sentimental posture inherited from a humanistic tradition no longer sure of its sources. It must be grounded in deep convictions resting on a framework of ideas that command the assent of thoughtful persons. The pages to follow make a splendid contribution to the development of such well-founded and critically defensible convictions. - Foreword.
