Note from the editor

This article in not directly related to psychoanalysis. It relates to the planet we live in. Psychoanalysis can not survive without a world to survive in. The article also has to do with the need for a new psychological sensibilty which psychoanalytic insights about human motivation may be able to help us achieve.
