Short description:

“Growing in the face of limits”: a motto that very accurately puts the tenor of environmental responsibility in a nutshell—but with equal accuracy also points to psychological principles that are essential for the maturing (the “growing-up”) of both individuals and societies. These principles will become intelligible through the lens of a constructive acceptance of five types of limits that we consistently must encounter in our lives—that is, of the limits

  1. of our powers and possibilities of influence
  2. of our importance in relation to others
  3. of the possible fulfillments of our wishes and drives
  4. of the unity of our inner life, and
  5. between our ego and the outside world.
