This book focuses on the question “What does it mean to be human”? unlike other best sellers like John Grey’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus: The Classic Guide to Understanding the Opposite Sex that focuses on what it means to be male or female as of year 2004.
The scope of What is Man? Male and Female has been broadened to include the interests of Parents in their parenting, Sociologists, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists as well as pre and in-service teachers and other education administration personnel. All of these professions have “Man” as their subject so it is critical to their practices how they view the “human.” Who or what is it that they are attempting to define, teach, or develop therapies for?
Resources used as endnote citations all predate 1987 and most predate 1975. I used original sources written by the philosopher himself or a close colleague.
