Using illustrations from her own life and experience as well as from the writings of others, Arianna Huffington claims that it is time for individuals to move beyond the primal instincts of survival, power, and sexuality to the fourth instinct. What is this universal force? The author defines it as "a clear disposition toward goodness, compassion and human fellowship." It is the search for meaning and wholeness in religion, art, science, relationships, and even in the depths of pain and loss. Huffington sees the fourth instinct as our "highest common denominator" — one which enables us to transcend alienation and achieve community. Here is another call to care for the soul.
