Edgar Morin, one of France’s leading intellectual figures and known as a path-breaking and innovative sociologist and researcher of popular culture, recounts the story of his experiences in the cauldron of change that was 1960s California, including his encounters with some of the leading minds of that time. The book combines Morin’s accounts of his experiences with his own search for answers to fundamental questions about the human condition. For a few months, the author had a profound feeling of being drawn into the heart of the “great questions,” played out personal and societal level. The result is an engaging and prophetic work that has as much if not more to offer today than it did when it was first published in France.
