The scientific tools built through Professor Leuner and his col­ leagues exemplify the view that human truth is composed not just of the direct stories of environmental stimulation or social interplay but in addition of the personal truth constructed as we replay those experi­ ences in our day and evening goals and form them into symbolic, metaphorical, or allegorical modes.
