Review:

"An enormously helpful resource for thinking about the world that lies ahead and how we can influence it for the better."-- Robert N. Bellah, coauthor of "Habits of the Heart"A book of singular importance and timeliness, one with momentous implications for the future."-- Howard Gardner""The Evolving Self suggests that only a collaborative effort of individuals willing to bring the creative zest of flow to the hard questions of moral choice will ensure a viable and harmonius future."-- "San Francisco Chronicle"The author believes that becoming an active, conscious part of the evolutionary process can give our lives meaning and joy. In fact, the fate of humanity in the next millennium depends on the kind of selves we become today."-- "Library Journal

Synopsis:

This study explains how science can offer a basis for morality in the coming millenium. Evolution and our cultural heritage have left us with behaviours that, while once crucial for survival, have now become maladaptive, such as unbridled aggression of selfishness. In today's world we must recognize that there is a common good - and only by transcending our biological and social programming can we achieve it, becoming in the process complex and integrated individuals. The book proposes, in essence, a set of values that should help us toward intelligent, creative lives, and guide us to a rational future.
