The eminent political scientist Manfred Halpern (1924-2001) viewed politics as belonging to each of us, as part of the nature of being human. In "A Comprehensive Philosophy of Transformation", his magnum opus, Halpern elucidates the interconnected 'four faces of our being': the political, personal, historical, and sacred. This momentous volume identifies several modes of political activity, warns against the dangers of leaving politics to professional politicians, and urges us to build networks of compassion that include everyone in a just society. Overall, Halpern calls for a transformative politics achieved through enhanced participation and understanding.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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
