Dr. Myron Milford "Mike" Arons (1929-2008) is recognized internationally as one of the founders of humanistic psychology. This volume serves as both a tribute to his memory and a gateway to reflection and scholarship by future generations of humanistic psychologists who did not have the privilege to know Arons. Edited by his mentee, Dr. Andrew Bland, and daughter, Sandrine Arons, The New-Old traces Arons' thought as it evolved over about three decades, from the 1970s to the 2000s. Following Sandrine Arons' preface and Bland's overview of Mike Arons' life and scholarship, 13 of Arons' papers (some of which are rare, out-of-print, or unpublished) are presented thematically in four sections: (a) his inspiration and influences; (b) creativity, consciousness, and culture; (c) humanistic education; and (d) two of Arons' hermeneutic explorations (on the topics of intuition and the nature of self). The book concludes with a discussion about the contemporary implications and applications of Arons' thinking as well as the accuracy of his predictions about the future of both psychology and society. Finally, an annotated bibliography of Arons' complete writings is included as an appendix.
