Ten years in the writing, Elliott has put together the implications of his findings from 55 years of practical consultancy research.

Ten years in the writing, Elliott has put together the implications of his findings from 55 years of practical consultancy research with individuals and social institutions, for the foundations of the behavioral sciences. Picking up where Kurt Lewin left off, he puts forward a new basis for a truly dynamic behavioral theory, beginning with his findings on the nature of work and goal-directed intentions and activity and on human capability as the measurable complexity of the work that a person has the potential to do.

From this starting point, the book covers an extraordinarily wide field from the full application of systems theory, elimination of the mind-body problem, a new look at evolution and the emergence and spread of the hominids and homo sapiens, to a new theory of language and the necessary conditions for the development of a healthy free enterprise democracy.
