Abstract:

Spellmeyer challenges us to look directly at the devastating assumptions underlying the very mechanisms of the modern world-- and offers a clarion call to awaken from a pervasive culture of destruction into a natural, sustainable, and sane peace. He references the Bible, popular culture, Zen, and Western philosophy in addressing two questions: how did we get here, and what can we do now. An answer to pervasive cynicism and decline, Spellmeyer shows how to accept and connect with reality in dark times.
