    problem with 'with'

    Dear teachers,

    I encountered this following sentence in a book I read:

    In the first section, I explore some insights including X, Y, and and the need for a concept of self which allows for a balancing concern for particular others with a more abstract concern for the environment as a whole.

    Does the colored part belong to 'insights' or particular others? What if I put coma after Z? I sometimes still have difficulties understanding complex sentences.

    Thank you.

    I believe the highlighted phrase describes 'concept of self'. Pretty much everything from 'which' onward describes 'concept of self' here. Also, I wouldn't put a comma after 'Z'.
