The Present Un-Indicative

Jackson, Don D.

The article focuses on the comments by a psychiatrist with reference to broader perspectives of human psychology. The idea that people exist with a great deal of their motivation and ideation outside of awareness would be difficult to object. It is difficult to estimate how much man has handicapped himself by his clinging to the notion that he is the master of his fate and captain of his soul. Recent concern about basic research in science and the problem of stimulating creative ideas has again demonstrated that it is not enough to will something, the spirit has to move as well.
