By focusing on the fact of our entrenched conditioning and the necessity for the psyche to undergo a revolution, Krishnamurti brings us to the interface, to the source of both the individual and society. * What is our response to a disintegrating society? * How can one bring about a transformation? (i) in oneself (ii) in society * What are the limitations of self-improvement? * What is real individuality? In his answers to questions such as these, Krishnamurti invites us to examine anew our relationship as human beings to ourselves and each other. "The individual is essentially the collective, and society is the creation of the individual. The individual and society are interrelated, are they not? They are not separate. The individual builds the structure of society, and society or environment shapes the individual. Though environment conditions the individual, he can always free himself, break away from his background... The individual is important only in the sense that he has the capacity to free himself from his conditioning and understand reality." - J. Krishnamurti, Commentaries on Living, Series II, Chapter 19
