An initial version or model of the monograph, "The Transformation of Hope", is now posted online. At this early stage, only the Table of Contents is available, but the Preface will be published tomorrow. Readers are very cordially invited to preview that page by visiting the link to "Transformation of Hope: A Book", which is provided in the sidebar on the left.

The process of thinking about these writings has contributed to my own sense of the poignancy of the human longing for change and growth against the background of inescapable loss.
I am very deeply indebteded to the patience, guidance and wisdom of the late Merton M. Gill, M.D., Aaron A. Hilkevitch, M.D. and Irwin Z. Hoffman, Ph.D.
