In an instruction from July 1935 the Master DK wrote to a disciple with the initials F.C.D.: "You could write a book which would be a synthesis of these new psychological ideas, subordinated to a central theme which would dominate them as the head dominates the activities of the body ... opportunity will come to you to reach the world with ideas that are relatively new ... you must work for a year at the organization of your thought and material so that you can reach the thinkers of the world with the new ideas in the field of that oncoming major science, that newer field of service -- the field of psychology." (Alice A. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age, Vol.I, p.146)

This volume was later re-published with the subtitle Self-Actualization Through Psychosynthesis.

The posthumously published volume Transpersonal Development: The Dimension Beyond Psychosynthesis (Thorsons Pub, 1991) contains "practical guidelines for anyone undertaking the task of self-knowledge and self-realization" based on notes and essays written by Dr Assagioli.

First UK paperback edition published by Wildwood House, 1974.
