Volume 3: The Possible Human

Drawn toward visions of the possibilities of humanity, Advanced Development is dedicated to providing glimpses of the evolutionary potential of the human race. The theme for this issue, “The Possible Human,” was inspired by the work of Jean Houston, the theorist/humanitarian we bring to you in these pages. Dr. Houston perceives us to be on the brink of a major world transformation, a “whole system phenomenological shift.”  The expansion of our capacities for wisdom, for compassion, for cooperation, is within our reach now. The evolution toward world consciousness has already begun. Moral exemplars, characteristics of gifted adults, and counseling needs are also addressed in this volume.
