Description

We are in the midst of the most dramatic cultural shift in three hundred years. This book explains why a great change is simmering in all facets of our civilization, from economics and politics to science and spirituality. Our inherited concept of a machine world - the clockwork universe - is giving way and the vision of a web world is rising to take its place.

The author weaves current realities and new scientific insights into a fascinating vision of history and science progressing through upheavals and rebirths up to the present day. Humankind, too, is bound into the patterns and processes of this web world, and Goerner describes the already visible signs of an emerging Integral Society in which head, heart and soul need no longer to be at odds.

Reviews

'This is a landmark book. Dr Goerner gently builds up a truly revolutionary, and truly practical, picture of the transformation that humanity now choose to take, and must take if it is to flourish or even survive. Nothing detracts from the magnitude of the achievement of this powerful and readable book.'
-- Chris Clarke, Network, April 2000
