About the book
Do you feel that humanity is in crisis? We have all the tools to create a healthy, harmonious society. Advances in science, technology, management, human rights and democratic governance have ushered in an era of unprecedented accomplishment and prosperity. They have given us the means to greatly reduce suffering from disease, poverty and conflict. At the same time, the ideas and social covenants that brought us to this point seem unable to meet the challenges of our overpopulated, globalized world. Signs of dysfunction are all around us: racial, ethnic and religious hatred seem to be on the rise; our natural environment is degrading rapidly; violence and mass migrations threaten stability everywhere; and the gap between rich and poor only grows larger. In much of the world loneliness, depression, drug abuse and a profound sense of loss of purpose have become pervasive. How did we get here? The Next Enlightenment argues that most of humanity’s problems are the result of a limited level of consciousness – an underdeveloped capacity for self-awareness that encourages utilitarian, self-centred behaviour while curbing our higher faculties. From this understanding it presents a compelling case for an alternative future based on the development of consciousness. It is both a political manifesto and a practical manual on how to create social conditions that will allow each of us to achieve our true purpose and script a new future for humanity.
