In this book, author Dillistone has tried to show how, in every department of human life, symbolic expression is the way to creative freedom. In contrast to all forms of totalitarianism, the symbol stands for openness, for pointing towards alternative possibilities, for readiness to experiment in the hope of gaining a fuller understanding of reality. All this is summed up for Dillistone in the quotation from Thomas Mann, which the author chose as the epigram for this book: "To live symbolically spells true freedom."
