Morgan Scott Peck (23 May 1936 – 25 September 2005) was an American psychiatrist and best-selling author, best known for his first book, The Road Less Traveled, published in 1978. A graduate of the Friends Seminary, a Quaker school, he earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard College in 1958 before entering the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Upon earning his M.D., he served in the U.S. Army, resigning in 1972 as a lieutenant colonel, assistant chief psychiatrist and neurology consultant to the U.S. Army surgeon general. He had a private psychiatry practice in Connecticut from 1972 to 1983.

Peck's works combined his experiences from his private psychiatric practice with a distinctly religious point of view. One of his religious insights was that people who are evil attack others rather than face their own failures. His religious views are criticized by the ultra conservatives. Peck died at his home in Connecticut on September 25, 2005. Fuller Theological Seminary houses the archives of his publications, awards, and correspondence.

Commentaire :

Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than The Road Less Traveled. With sales of more than seven million copies in the United States and Canada, and translations into more than twenty-three languages, it has made publishing history, with more than ten years on the New York Times bestseller list.
Now, with a new Introduction by the author, written especially for this twenty-fifth anniversary deluxe trade paperback edition of the all-time national bestseller in its field, M. Scott Peck explains the ideas that shaped this book and that continue to influence an ever-growing audience of readers.
Written in a voice that is timeless in its message of understanding, The Road Less Traveled continues to help us explore the very nature of loving relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. It helps us learn how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one's own true self.
Recognizing that, as in the famous opening line of his book, "Life is difficult" and that the journey to spiritual growth is a long one, Dr. Peck never bullies his readers, but rather guides them gently through the hard and often painful process of change toward a higher level of self-understanding.
