What is the Nature of a Healthy Human Self?

Are there certain basic principles of “healthy human self-ness” that apply to all human beings, no matter one’s culture, ethnicity, language, education, religion, beliefs, or good intentions?

All our “Self Titles” are based on the premises that there are common basic principles of life applicable to all human beings no matter one’s culture, ethnicity, language, education, religion, beliefs, or good intentions, and that the more one lives one’s life in harmony with the basic principles of life for all human beings, the more functional, healthy or optimal one’s life will be.

We use “healthy self” not in any medical sense of a “sick self” or a “defective self” versus a “healthy self” or “perfect self”, but rather in the sense of the range of “dysfunctional” Self-thinking, Self-awareness, Self-action versus the range of “optimally functional” Self-thinking, Self-awareness, Self-action. The question of “what is a healthy human self?” is focused on exploring this range of “optimally functional” mental, emotional, behavioral characteristics that is supported, validated, indicated, by credible scientific research or which is so self-evident as to need no scientific validation.

Our goal at LGIBooks is to produce websites, books and audio/video content that can help Educate the Culture (the Human Culture) about basic principles of a healthy self supported by substantial credible research. We currently have over 50 other Self Titles.
