A world-wide surge of interest in what human beings could be and could become started in the 1940s, grew slowly in the 1950s, grew much faster in the 60s and finally reached its full flowering in the 1970s.

It is no longer unfashionable to admit that you are interested in understanding yourself and what you might be or become.
