My own epistemopathic observations have not been confined to psychology. Part of my professional commitment has been to philosophy, and I have had a lifelong interest in the arts and humanities. Virtually all fields of cultural life-and too many fields of practical life-are, I think, close to an impasse: an impasse of objective, method, substance, value, and education! Things cannot get much better until we “put our fingers” on the particularities of these blockages. General diagnosis, free-floating existential screams, are not enough.
