ABSTRACT
No matter how global au individual's concerns for freedom and justice might be, she can he fully responsible in only one small part of that world. For many social scientists even those who consider themselves radical or humanist, this critical relationship between one's personal struggle to be free and the common struggle to create a unified world community is missed. Their commitment to a consciousness that supports revolution by science or politics excludes them from grasping the message that the link between the individual and the world is the body, the body of each of us struggling to express itself spiritually through work with and for others in self-sufficient communities. For those who spend their lives generating credentials and awarding certificates or for those who have become revolving door recipients in various certification processes, such a proposal sounds like an open invitation to chaos, a special form of terrorism. Since these processes exclude by what they entail any experiential familiarity with the expression of deep and spontaneous feelings, any suggestion that some attention be given to the stirrings of spontaneity in the daily lives is considered a--revolutionary pipedream.
