J. Richard Wingerter told CA: "Many contemporary writers and commentators quote Krishnamurti as they try to relate some of what he says to contemporary ordinary thinking, but most often, if not always, they end up distorting and misinterpreting what he actually says. Beyond Metaphysics Revisited was written in an attempt to show that this is indeed the case and also to suggest what would constitute the kind of revolution in the mind that Krishnamurti called for. Specifically, the book is a call for revolution, and not just reformation, as regards the philosophic mind."
