Track 1: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Abraham Maslow's quotes, "We might almost say that these extensive books on the psychology of learning are of no consequence, at least to the human center, to the human soul, to the human essence." From The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, by Abraham Maslow, page 162, 1st paragraph.

Track 2: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Abraham Maslow's quotes, "Generated by this new humanistic philosophy is also a new conception of learning, of teaching, and of education. Stated simply, such a concept holds that the function of education, the goal of education - the human goal, the humanistic goal, the goal so far as human beings are concerned - is ultimately the 'self-actualization' of a person, the becoming fully human, the development of the fullest height that the human species can stand up to or that the particular individual can come to. In a less technical way, it is helping the person to become the best that he is able to become." From The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, by Abraham Maslow, pages 162 through 163, 2nd paragraph.

Tracks 3 through 6: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Singer/Song Writer Jewel Kilcher's quotes from a 1997 interview at Mediadome.com®.

Jewel Kilcher said, "We have media telling us how poorly we're always doing. How raping and pillaging and evil we all are. And on top of that, we have parents who are quite often damaging. I don't say that as a judgment. It's only because they've been damaged. And on top of that, we have teachers who are underpaid and uninspired and thus uninspiring."

Jewel continues, "So what are we given? We're also given, my generation, the disillusionment of our parents. We're too young to be disillusioned. It's the people that had the dream in the '60s that wasn't manifested. They became disillusioned. And we're raised with their hopelessness, in some degrees, and their materialism."

Jewel goes on to say, "So then, on top of that, we don't have any spiritual leaders. We don't trust religion. We don't trust politicians, and we're given drugs and sex and television to pacify us. So it's very understandable where kids are at. It's not a big mystery that we're not taught about our spirits or how to behave."

Jewel concludes, "I was never taught about my emotions. How to understand what I was feeling? How to understand the affect of other people on me emotionally, and what that made me create in my relationships? We're not taught that kind of thing at all and we should be, because that's human life, that's raising children, that's the foundation, the fabric of what we are. And it's also what the greatest thinkers understood well."
