This is Dr. Roberto Assagioli's second book on the psychological system he formulated known as Psychosynthesis.
It continues where his first book left off and delves into the important process of willing as a psychological function based on a higher self rather on guilt or determination as in the Victorian concept of the will.

I bought this book just because of the very cool name. It floated around in my computer bag for a month or so.
I finally started reading it and am blown away with it so far. It deals a lot with Maslow's hierarchy if needs. I found a copy of Assagioli's "Psychosynthesis" at Half Price books. I am going to read that next and then re-read "The Act of Will". View 2 comments. Sep 20, Flan rated it really liked it. This book was written in the early 70s and reflects some ideas that are dated. However, his perspective that will has seven qualities and if we develop each quality we can use our will for growth.
It's worth the read, but I found myself filling in with new information that may temper some of his concepts. It's a good book. It talks how free will plays a part in the psychological make up of a person. Sep 14, Yates Buckley rated it really liked it Shelves: curious , essential , technical.
This is a kind of psychology book with a unique perspective on the person as the result of conscious Will. And the Will itself is multifaceted aspect of personality that can be grown for fulfillment in its many different dimensions. While the text is a bit dry, some of the ideas were very new to me and eye opening, I am surprised to not have come across this book earlier.
A mio parere libro estremamente complesso. E secondo me, dedicato solo a professionisti del settore psicologia. L'ho letto ma non credo di essere in grado di dare un giudizio. Mar 17, Jmp rated it liked it. Text book study of "The Will". Very thorough but boring n the best way of 's textbooks. Feb 05, Alessandro rated it it was amazing.
Fondamentale per modellare al meglio la propria vita presente e futura. Mar 30, Jimmy Navotni rated it it was amazing. It is an amazing book from the founder of Psychosynthesis. As his other book, this one, too, is a clear and comprehensive statement of how important the will in our life is. Again, both practical and theoretical aspects have been mentioned. Sep 18, Dar Dontpanic rated it it was amazing. Illuminating lecture. Jul 21, Emlyn Lewis rated it it was amazing. Fascinating trip to self actualisation philosophy and psychology for any Abraham Maslow fan.
Apr 12, Joe rated it really liked it. The different dimensions of the human will and how one can use the will to be more self aware because will goes along with one's existence or the 'I'.
