Reflections On The Self, edited by Raymond Martin, former professor of philosophy at the University of Maryland, contains excerpts from j. Krishnamurti's writings and talks on the nature of human emotions, the self and self-identification, inquiry, and the pure observation which frees human beings psychologically.
Though it was conceived of primarily as a text for university students, the common reader will find the selections speaking directly to the existential issues he is confronted with in his everyday life. As the editor says in his lntroduction,‘…Much of what Krishnamurti said is deeply relevant to philosophy. Lt relevance is not that he had theories to propose or critiques of extant theories. Krishnamurti's focus is on insights. His talent as a teacher is that he facilitates them.’
Those who wish to engage creatively with their inner life of conflicting thoughts and emotions, and their quest for freedom and happiness, will find in this book a rich resource.
