"This book contains the Inaugural Lectures given at Clark University in honor of the late Heinz Werner, world-famous developmental psychologist. Dr. von Bertalanffy here attempts to establish a new interdisciplinary science of man, a science that would encompass aspects of psychology, biology, psychiatry, linguistics and anthropology by emphasizing the centrality of the concepts of symbol and system. These lectures develop the foundation of this projected science through acute criticism of contemporary images of man and his nature."
