The Conduct of Life
The Conduct of Life
By Lewis Mumford
Harcourt, 1951, 342 pp.

In this the last of a series of works, starting with "Technics and Civilization," trying to diagnose the crises of modern civilization, the author also turns to prescription and remedy. A bitter critic of the specialization of our times and the fragmentation of personality, Mr. Mumford pleads for a restoration of "wholeness" in the person and in society.
