Why Was I Born?

Lyle Simpson’s Why Was I Born? explores the psychology underlying religious belief, through the prism of Abraham Maslow’s "Hierarchy of Needs" and the Meyer-Briggs personality typology. Rejecting the easy answers of our society, Simpson addresses profound questions like: Why are we here?; How do face our own death?; Why do we need others?; and How do we make our lives significant? from a humanist psychological standpoint, making vastly more sense than anyone who tries to answer these questions through our cultural traditions.
