Bugbee pages 75-95
In this section of Bugbee, one of the main topics he talks about is the ego. He doesn't see the ego as a good thing, but instead, he sees it as something to overcome. He took this quote from Marcel, "Burdened with myself, plunged in this disturbing world, Sometimes my accomplice, I keep an eager look out for everything emanating from it which it might either sooth or ulcerate the wound I bear within me, which is my ego." One way to overcome it, he says is through understanding individuality and universality. These can both be learned in experience. He says, "once again, the ideas of individuality an universality come back to me, hand in hand."
