Summary
Max Lerner and five Brandeis students discuss: what is the most important life goal; what is the criteria by which we measure Americans; is it the values that are held or is it the definitions given to those values that cause the trouble in America today; do people lose their identity in their striving for their life goal; do we ignore the word “freedom” in our search for life goals; are we afraid of freedom; is it possible to have solitude in our civilization; if our goals are unhealthy, with what do we replace them; should there be no forces that pressure personality in our society; what do the words “power,” “success,” “prestige” and “security” really mean; and who should be the one to judge the validity of one’s life goal.
