      Thank you for your kind words. You might be interested
      in reading some of Robert Bellah's work, especially
      his "Habits of the Heart". He has a similar view of
      the therapeutic assumptions that have come to pervade
      so much of American thinking and that have tended to
      reinforce a radically individualistic sense of the
      self that makes people incapable of perceiving and
      expressing moral views in language other than that of
      radical individualism (a very poverty-stricken
      language for moral discourse!).

      Bellah was one of my advisors at Berkeley, and we
      still keep in fairly frequent email contact.
