Abstract

The paper offers an outline of Rogers\' Person-Centered Approach, of his philo_sophy of human relationships and of his vision of the future world. Although Rogers\' undoubtedly attractive project might be too optimistic for the most of contemporary European intellectuals, his ideas show clearly, how an important stream of contemporary psychological thought tries to find a meaningful prospective for modern humans. The author finds Rogers\' optimism, his sympathy for humans and his admirable belief in the possibilities of human cooperation even surprising. Roger´s insights contributed to a new understanding of important institutions of our time, as well as of reaching a personality change through empathy, acceptance, open communication and dialogue - preparing the ways for making use of the therapeutic potential of philosophy.
