It was very interesting to consider that every person shows some outside unreal mask about him or herself. At the same time, every person must find, sincerely his own being. This is the central idea of the book, being from where the author takes his stand. Tournier assures that every man "there is a part of impenetrable mystery even to himself". The relationships we maintain with our peers greatly depend on who we are. It is extremely important to improve ourselves in order to improve our relationships. If we are surrounded by people every day of our lives, then every effort that we put forth to improve our relationships, will be worthwhile.

A human being is a whole within its self. The Swiss doctor in this book shows us many cases of people that were affected physically, and because of that began to suffer psychologically. A typical case would be the loss of an arm or leg. The person's whole personality is affected. This holistic vision of man helps us to realize that a person cannot divided into parts or sections. Every man is an inseparable essence. From this truth, a new one can be derived. There are as many personalities as people on the face of the earth. While it may be possible to classify certain aspects of human personalities, every individual person manages his or her own personality.

The person and the community are important for the author. In other words, a person could not exist outside of his or her community. Only in human inter -relationship can a person discover his or her real personality. From a spiritual point of view, this reminds me of something that the Bible tells us that the prophet Isaiah experienced when he was called to the ministry. When Isaiah saw God's glory, he became more aware if his own person. God cleanses Isaiah from sin and gives him a job to do in his community. That is why I consider that spiritual growth is the primary foundation to knowing oneself and others.
