[NOTE: The following description of the life and work of Dr. Roberto Assagioli was taken from an article titled In Memoriam: Roberto Assagioli (1888-1974) in the second Synthesis Journal. Author is unknown.]
His life had a wholeness offered to few men or women; whole, in the
sense that the bold innovator born nearly a century ago lived to see his
ideas take form in hundreds of articles, books in many languages,
students in numerous countries, a body of theory pregnant with new
implications and consequences, and centers continuing to develop his
work in the United States, Canada, England, Italy, Switzerland, France,
Greece and Argentina.
Be that as it may, the achievement of the man, both public and personal, recalls our attention and deserves to be remembered.

He was never alone, of course. He was always a well-known figure, even
prominent in Roman culture before the Second World War. He had
correspondents and friends, colleagues and co-workers, all over the
world – Jung, Maslow and Tagore among them. But the real work of those
many years was a work of preparation; of patient thinking, studying, and
learning the ways of the human psyche, of writing and rewriting. It was
as if he were called to nurture, in a relative quietness, the outline
of a theoretical and practical view of the human being that men and
women of the seventies and beyond could use.
