Everyone has his or her own voice. Some express it loudly and clearly; some just mumble or whisper.

“Equality” I was blessed with the good fortune of having been born as a Jew in the United States of America. I have often reflected upon the meaning of that good fortune. I was born just months after the outbreak of World War II and have often been haunted by the fact that my young […]

Imagine standing at a crossroads. We have all been there. We have all experienced moments in our life’s journey when we had to make a crucial choice and decide whether to proceed along one road or along another.

Yet he was one of the major psychological theorists of the 20th century, and I personally have found his insights into the human mind both fascinating and practical.
