469 LANGUAGE AND THE INTEGRATION OF PERSONALITY Edward L. Murray While psychology for the past sixty or seventy years, and philosophy and theology for many years previous to that, has concerned itself with the problems of human alienation, as well as human fragmentation, there would seem to be little disputing the fact that its ultimate concern is human integration (1). To be sure, the subject is not its prerogative, any more than were the questions of alienation or fragmentation. One need only scan the pages of the New Testament, for example, to leam how concerned the early Christians were with this matter; or those of the Old Testament, to cite another example, to see the famous Job painfully struggle towards those realizations that enabled him to put his life together after a nightmare of suffering. That much having been conceded, however, the fact remains that psychology has devoted itself in a unique way to the study of this phenomenon of personality integration. And well it should. Counseling centers and offices, on and off campus, are daily visited by persons who experience themselves as falling apart, at loose ends, losing their grip, overwhelmed by life and its de- mands.
