Charles Darwin taught us that species — of plants and organisms — are in a life-and-death struggle for survival whole coping with the immediate circumstances they encounter. Yes, species are in a survival struggle. But so are individuals. It is the individual who, invariably, loses the struggle. Each of us dies — but not before a life-long effort to cope with the here and now, in which we actually find ourselves.
This is the challenge I address in the new edition of my book, IMMEDIACY: OUR WAYS OF COPING IN EVERYDAY LIFE. It is available (as printed book and as e-book) from Amazon and the publisher, AuthorHouse.
