The Unfolding of Man. Research Note. Educational Policy Research Center - 67-47-3.
Material gathered from education, religion, medicine and related fields comprises this practical approach to dealing with human development. The unity underlying the multiplicity of ways of growth (150 educational methods or systems) is a recurrent theme. This unity transcends the seemingly diverse intentions of education, psychiatry, and religion. The author contends that close scrutiny may uncover enough of a meeting ground to warrant the ambition of a unified science and art of human change. Indeed, a consistent view of man's development will fuse the three currently separated disciplines. The author suggests a phenomenological approach to practical ways of personal growth which provides an experiential meeting ground for diverse techniques, exercises and procedures that would contribute to the unfolding of man. His approach is intended to elucidate two things: (1) the unity of secular and and religious views concerning the process of the unfolding of man; and (2) the unity of various methods of achieving human growth from the standpoint of experiences these methods elicit, rather than from their external descriptions.
