The Life of Will - H. W. Randall - Bog

- Third edition

Bag om The Life of Will

The autobiography here of William Foralisworth is an example of human life proceeding from one interest to another. William’s first day at school tipped him off that life is perhaps not a bowl of cherries. Ambivalently relocating to different states of the US with his parents required social adaptations his genes never could have anticipated. Interest in understanding what was going on motivated him eventually to seek higher education, which led to expatriate travel and living in different cultures. His anecdotal ventures are related with amusement and illustrate an interplay of choice and circumstance as he moved about Japan, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, Israel, and Europe. A chance meeting with an orange-picking Danish woman in Israel led to domestic life in Denmark. The introduction and afterword are reflections offered by H.W. Randall and draw on biology, physics, psychology, and studies in consciousness to suggest that while the impulse of life can manifest in human ‘will’, one’s life can be both pulled and pushed by transcendent, non-physicalist fields of assumption.
