About the Author:

Manfred Halpern (1924–2001) was professor in the Department of Politics at Princeton University.
David Abalos is visitor professor of politics at Princeton University and professor emeritus of religious studies and sociology at Seton Hall University.

Review:

“This is Manfred Halpern’s magnum opus. It is a scholarly and spiritual masterpiece. The human race is rapidly approaching a crisis of epic proportions, with America at the epicenter of it all.  Manfred Halpern’s comprehensive philosophy addresses what the crisis is really about, how best to meet it and how to embrace the changes we must make or face unimaginable perils. This work is about the importance of seeing dramatic change as a positive thing and about the strength, beauty and necessity of universal transformation. What could be more significant and useful at this time in history?” (Ted Becker, Auburn University)

“Manfred Halpern’s Transforming the Personal, Political, Historical and Sacred in Theory and Practice is destined to be a classic. It is the culmination of a lifetime of work. Sparked by Halpern’s experience as a diplomat in the Middle East, it was then shaped by decades of research and reflection, and honed by communicating the ideas to generations of students and colleagues. At Princeton, Halpern’s ideas captivated students in the way that Teilhard de Chardin, Mircea Eliade, Martin Buber, Carl Jung and Friedrich Hegel captured earlier generations. This is a rare and brilliant book that will endure.”

(Carl Rigolot, Princeton University)
