The Path of Humanity. Social Innovation for the World of Tomorrow
Parthenon, 2018 - 1100 pages
Today?s societies are at a breaking point, characterized by problems like the?plastic soup?, climate change, inadequate health care, and social isolation. It is a time of transition. Human nature, often rather self-absorbed, seems powerless to turn the tide. Yet for hundreds of millennia our species has unconsciously been following an unseen path of improvement, with all its ups and downs, in our evolution from hunter-gatherers to agricultural societies, city states, modern nation states, and finally to the late-modern world of today.0By recognizing this?path of humanity? and consciously following it, we can greatly improve and even accelerate societal development. Taking?the path? offers humanity new opportunities for societal innovation and makes acting together as Team World the obvious choice. The author shows how?recursive perspectivism? enables us to see the experiential space in which we as actors shape our societal lives. This far-reaching hypothesis reveals a discrete numeric landscape of perspectives that explains empirical pattern-distribution laws such as the laws of Zipf and Benford, and the Pareto principle, with prime numbers playing a leading role.0.
