The transformations of man by Lewis Mumford( Book )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1957, this volume compares the 20th Century transformation of human life to the revolution which swept early man into the first civilized communities. It shows how each radical new stage of human development grew out of changes in human personality and consciousness, such as the invention of language and symbols, the origins of universal religions and the mechanization of everyday life. Despite the threat that the author foresees from an over-reliance on automation, the book maintains that humanity still has the means, spiritual, personal and technological to create a sustainable future for itself, by increasing the usefulness and freedom of all men

The reality of the devil: evil in man by Ruth Nanda Anshen( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Devil has stalked the imagination of Western man as the personification of Evil, and The Reality of the Devil is an acutely perceptive study of the satanic condition. Dr. Anshen's book rids us of devilish misconceptions, leading us to perceive Satan as a great power in his own realm, a realm in which he is deadly serious in his effort to save and preserve the individual personality at any cost. To opt for God, however, precludes the utter loneliness guaranteed by alliance with the Devil. There is greatness on both sides, says the author, the choice is ours."--Back cover

The mystery of consciousness : a prescription for human survival by Ruth Nanda Anshen( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ruth Nanda Anshen is one of the world's foremost living philosophers. This brilliant treatise challenges traditional science's belief that human consciousness is something that can be measured and quantified. Indeed, argues Dr. Anshen, consciousness is and will remain a mystery and should be treated as such."--BOOK JACKET. "Consciousness is many things. It bestows upon humans the ability to interpret outside signs - to think. It allows us the power to establish the value of a perceived object - to feel. Consciousness embodies intuition, making it possible for humans to establish relationships between subjects and objects, thus moving away from passive acceptance of the world around them. However, Dr. Anshen believes that traditional science, in its effort to study consciousness, only fragments it and thus negates its very nature."--BOOK JACKET. ""Science itself, even neurobiology, cannot solve the mystery of consciousness which cannot, should not, be submitted to empirical investigation or examination." Ultimately Dr. Anshen argues that consciousness should be understood as a moral state, which allows "our freedom of choice, our will to choose either Good or Evil through our awareness of both.""--BOOK JACKET
The meaning of the twentieth century; the great transition by Kenneth E Boulding( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1965 and written by a noted economist and leader in the field of conflict resolution, this book traces the forces which have brought the 20th century post-civilisation' into being: the ever-increasing power of science and the scientific attitude, the global communication network, the high efficiency of industrial societies. New conditions pointed to a life of ease but also enormous problems. The book discusses how though our technical resources have become immense, social and psychological conflicts remain. The author's training in psychology and economics combines with a deep sense of history to create a book which is as relevant now as when it was first published
