    schema:description ""Where's the Truth? is the fourth and final volume of Wilhelm Reich's autobiographical writings, drawn from his diaries, letters, and laboratory notebooks. They share the details of the outrider scientist's life--his joys and sorrows, his insecurities and moments of grandiosity--and chronicle his experiments with what he called "orgone energy." A student of Freud's and a prominent research physician in the early psychoanalytic movement, Reich moved to America in flight from Nazism and pursued research about how energy functions in the living organism. Where's the Truth? begins in January 1948, shortly after he became the target of federal investigators. He faced persecution and censorship by the U.S. government--he was mistaken for a Nazi sympathizer and was hounded by the FBI; the FDA banned the use of his orgone box, meant to increase sexual potency and overall health; he withstood a public burning of six tons of his published works, had a stint in a mental facility, was imprisoned for contempt of court in March 1957, and died in prison eight months later. The texts gathered here show his steadfast determination to protect his work. "Where's the truth?" he asked while on trial, and that question animates this volume and rounds out our understanding of a unique, irrepressible modern figure"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
