Transcript of M. Scott Peck

M. Scott Peck
History of a man looking for truth
Late Majority
“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”
― M. Scott Peck

“We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.”
M. Scott Peck
Four qualities in my pioneer character I most admire:

1. He chose to put his faith first instead of seeking praise from the world.
2. He felt that it was important to find a way to help individuals deal with very complex issues concerning healing and mental health.
3. He was not afraid of communicating his ideas about a controversial issue, such as evil.
4. He was not afraid to talk about GOD.

Dr. Peck was born on May 22, 1936 in New York City, the younger of two sons to David Warner Peck, a prominent lawyer and jurist, and his wife Elizabeth Saville. He married Lily Ho in 1959, and they had three children.Dr. Peck received his B.A. degree magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1958, and his M.D. degree from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in 1963. From 1963 until 1972, he served in the United States Army, resigning from the position of Assistant Chief Psychiatry and Neurology Consultant to the Surgeon General of the Army with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and the Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster. From 1972 to 1983, Dr. Peck was engaged in the private practice of psychiatry in Litchfield County, Connecticut.On March 9, 1980 at the age of 43, Dr. Peck was nondenominationally baptized by a Methodist minister in an Episcopalian convent (where he has frequently gone on retreat).

Dr. Peck was a nationally recognized authority on the relationship between religion and science, and the science of psychology in particular. In 1992 Dr. Peck was selected by the American Psychiatric Association as a distinguished psychiatrist lecturer "for his outstanding achievement in the field of psychiatry as an educator, researcher and clinician."


“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths.
It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”
― M. Scott Peck
Saw life as a journey
Two deficiences exhibited by my pioneer character educator I least admire :
1. He oftened referred to GOD as "She, or Her.
2. He stated that there wer many roads to reach GOD.
Peck (1993).The Road Less Traveled.
My pioneer character educator best exemplifies:
Respect, because he educated individuals on how to respect their spiritual beliefs and to embrace them.
A second value lens this pioneer educator esemplifies is loyalty, because he was always loyal to what he believed and he was not afraid to engage others on how he felt about his work and about GOD.

The Three words that I would use to describe the character of my pioneer character educator are:
2. Open
3. Loyal
The one sentence I would use to summerize the ethicx of this pioneer character educator is: He was a man looking for truth.
One value that I would ascribe to my pioneer charac educator is: Empathy
The mystery of goodness is even greater than the mystery of goodness.
