ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE – Buy it here
The third novel of Koestler’s trilogy on ends and means. The central theme is the conflict between morality and expediency, and in Arrival and Departure Koestler works it out in terms of individual psychology. Peter Slavek starts out as a brave young revolutionary, but suffers a breakdown. On the analyst’s couch he is made to discover, in Koestler’s own words, that his crusading zeal was derived from unconscious guilt.
