Man today is becoming poignantly aware of his power to influence for good or evil his own destiny. At this critical moment when he questions his future, we believe it important to present to the public the most significant passages from those books of Sri Aurobindo which deal with this problem, the future evolution of humanity.
The quotations contained in this small volume are taken from the three following works:
The Life Divine
The Human Cycle
The Synthesis of Yoga
At the end of the volume are given a few notes explaining the terms used by Sri Aurobindo and a bibliography.
Our aim will be accomplished if the reader is induced to turn to the original works.
