Sunday Reading Suggestion – The State Of The World

December 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

This is the best ‘state-of-the-world’ essay I’ve read in a while. It is a corker!

It opens with a comparison of the Western world today to that of Rome during the end of the ancient world and the emergence of Christianity. Then, sweeping through philosophy, history, psychology and science – explores today’s conceptions of power, progress, consciousness and meaning. The best bit is that it doesn’t focus on the dying of something epochal – but on the reorientation and rebirth of the new, the just and the free. Hope you enjoy!
