The Ascent of Humanity: The Evolution of the Human Sense of Self
Friday, November 12, 2010
Author Charles Eisenstein has written a compelling new book, The Ascent of Humanity, which suggests that the gathering crises of our age demonstrate that our current way of being is on the verge of collapse. And this collapse is setting the stage for a revolution in human beingness whose stirrings we already begin to feel. What is the purpose of the grandeur and the ruin we have wrought? If civilization is to collapse, why? And what for? Will we then go back to the Stone Age, or will we be born into something entirely new? More than anything, The Ascent of Humanity and Charles' interview with Christopher and Laura, are about how to create the more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible.
