In Adulthood, Morality, and the Fully Human, John J. Shea describes an adult, moral, and fully human self in terms of integrity and mutuality. Those who are fully human are caring and just. Violence is the absence of care and justice. Peace--the pinnacle of human development--is their embodiment. Integrity and mutuality together beget care and justice and care and justice together beget peace. Shea shows the practical importance of the fully human self for education, psychotherapy, and spirituality. This book is especially recommended for scholars and those in helping professions.
