Modern Civilization: A Crisis of Fragmentation
The Crisis Of The Age Inheres In This, That Notwithstanding The Century S Mind-Boggling Disasters, It Persists In Subscribing To Propositions Which Have Logically Led To The Atomization Of The Whole Cloth Of Human Experiencing, And Being. Great Indeed Is The Value, Which Is Placed On The Procedure Of Analytic Dismemberment. While The Method Has Certainly Been Result Producing, Materially, In Its Wake It Has Brought Immense Suffering- Both Physical And Spiritual. The Price Paid For A Lopsided Advance Is Thirty Major Wars With Their Toll Of One Hundred And Thirty Million Lives, And The Irreparable Destruction Of The Natural Environment. The Time Cries For A Reappraisal Of The Basic Paradigms Of Human Existence, But The Hegemony Of Well-Entrenched Vested Interests Material Or Intellectual Would Seem To Preclude This. The Advanced Among The Mankind Of The Day Become Suicidally Specialized. For, If The Mechanical Model Of Thought Has Been Of Advantage In Man S Preceding Unfolding, The Same, What May Be Called The Survival Paradigm,, Now Creates Dangerous Dualities, Binary Oppositions (You-Me, Body-Mind, East-West, Etc.) . The Model Has Outlived Its Usefulness Merely Enforcing Dormancy On A Major Part Of The Human Brain. It Behoves Mankind To Choose Wisely Right Now Since Parallel To The Socio-Economic, Scientific And Technological Revolutions There Has Got To Be The Overdue Radical Psychic Transformation. The First Step Towards Clearing The Fateful Crisis Would Therefore Be To Be Aware, And End The Hold Of The Linear, Causal, Mechanical Thought Orientation Over The Intellectual Culture Of The Times. Delving Deep Into The Epistemological-Cum-Ontological Causation Of The Emergency Confronting The Being And Becoming Of Man, The Author Of This Important Work Provokes The Thoughtful Lay Reader To A Serious Engagement With His Or Her Self.
