 本書では、一見すると、人間の悪い側面ばかりが、これでもか、これでもかとばかりに取りあげられる。しかしながら、実は、その裏に見え隠れする、それとは全く逆の人間の本質を浮き彫りにすることこそ、本書が目的としているところである。 人間は、懲りたり困ったりすることを通じて、つまり反省することを通じて、行動を前向きに矯正することを迫られる。 ところが実際には、懲りたり困ったりすることがなく、同じ行動が全く矯正されないまま繰り返される場合も少なくない。約束に必ず遅刻するとか、締め切りまぎわにならないと仕事に着手できないとかの不思議な行動がその一例である。 本書では、きわめて重要でありながら、しかもほとんどの人たちが身近に観察している事実でありながら、心理学者や精神科医などの専門家によって取りあげられることが、これまで皆無に近かったさまざまな現象に焦点を当て、実例を多数引用しながら、そうした現象の根底にある人間の心の動きを検討し、新しい人間観を提唱するつもりである。また、本書に副次的な目的があるとすれば、それは、いわゆる異常と正常の境界線が、現実にはきわめて不明瞭なものであることを、ある程度にせよ浮かび上がらせることである。(「はじめに」より)
