Once again, Holmes brings us deeper along the journey of self analysis in his latest critique of identity. Traditional and contemporary philosophies alike are surveyed with provoking style to illuminate a novel of introspection. The primary goal remains the constituents of human identity. Through an analysis of reason, affectivity, aesthetics and responsibility, this new view presents the human person as the indelible foundation of selfhood. Not only does the psychology presented allow for a delineation of the various elements of who we are, but emerging alongside is a cogent epistemology and spiritual orientation. The depths of existence and the self are equally plumbed and artistically rendered despite their transcendent ends. 'Here we see the Existentialist crisis reexamined through the varying lenses of psychology, theology and, perhaps most beautifully, the honest and genuine voice of human experience. Holmes gives new life to the concept of the 'self,' acknowledging both the infinite complexities and the profound fulfillment associated with conscious existence. This book strikes a chord in the awakening soul.' -Linda Senecal, St. Bernard's Central, Fitchburg Ma. 'Every pen stroke in this book is a summation of history that reaches toward timelessness. The genesis of this book is the same genesis of all mankind and serves as, not only a bridge to a tradition and a past, but also the essential foundation for a movement forward. -Jonas Halley, Assumption College, Worcester Ma. 'I find it interesting that I feel hope and dread at the same time when reading the author's work. The intriguing blend of knowledge and essence remains a source of inspiration.' -Vanessa Miglialo, Sherbrooke Quebec.
