Beyond Faith and Reason
In this second edition of the book that sought to answer the question 'What is identity?', Holmes brings you along a sometimes troubling journey of self analysis. Through provoking style and imagery, the reader is led from a survey of traditional and contemporary philosophy to a psychology of introspection. The primary goal remains a focus on the individual person's identity. Not only does the psychology presented allow for a delineation of the various elements of the personal psyche, but emerging alongside is a cogent epistemology of meaning and spiritual orientation in the world. The depths of existence and the self equally plumbed and artistically rendered in their transcendent ends.
