Ends and Means by Aldous Huxley


This book presents the author's conception of a philosophy of life that he feels will alone save mankind from the evils of war, poverty, and the lust of power. This philosophy is centered in the attainment of the ideal of the non-attached man: "Non-attached to his bodily sensations and lusts. Non-attached to his craving for power and possessions. Non-attached to the objects of these various desires. Non-attached to his anger and hatred; non-attached to his exclusive loves. Non-attached to wealth, fame, and social position."

 Industry Reviews

"One carries away from this book the impression of a refreshing intellectual vitality that grows all the stronger when contrasted with the writing of literary 'intellectuals' whose thinking ends where their politics begin."
"Written with the lucidity and touches of the stylistic brilliance that we have come to expect from its author. A remarkable volume in its own right, its interest is heightened by the extraordinary transformation it reveals in Mr. Huxley's mental attitude."
"A book to be read, re-read and thought about. The practical advice may be faulty but the essential method is surely sound. It is this combination of intense preoccupation with ultimate truth, and intense emotional and artistic sincerity, which is the world's first need today."
