Personhood: the art of being fully human
In this book, Leo Buscaglia attempts to offer an historic view of the ethical principles that have guided our humanity. He believes that everyone is responsible through their own uniqueness for completing a portion of a vast universal canvas. Full actualization of the world, therefore, depends on one's self-actualization. Consequently, the greatest challenge to all people is to work at being fully human.
