9780615658872: Universal History and the Telos of Human Progress: How History is Made

For the first time ever, all the historians who have written world history textbooks for students or the general public since the beginning of Western civilization have been brought together. The goal: to ascertain the meaning they found in the whole human story. Some no doubt wrote to fulfill a contractual obligation, but most were concerned about the trajectory of their society. They used the world's history as a grand context within which clues could be found as to the fate of their community. As they did this, they presented the whole story-arc of human life to us on a silver platter, and this book likewise presents the visions they brought forth in their writing, in the order in which they appeared. Nearing the end, in a conclusion Howard Bloom called "anthemic," what emerges is a scintillating philosophical justification for the human colonization of the solar system.

Descrizione libro University of Antarctica Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 796 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 2.2in.Each day is square one as the electrons zip around the nuclei of the trillion atoms out of which we are made. They do their thing so we can do ours at a higher level of consciousness. Amongst humans, advanced ones, carriers of the good, each day of our consciousness is square one as well, and like the electrons, the results fall on a multivalent plane in gradational, concentric circles of higher advancement. There is what is good for me today which is equivalent to what do I want to do right now. Then there is what can I do that is good today, a different question but not necessarily carrying a different answer. Depends on personal taste. Then there is what is the best outcome for us in the long term, and that valence level requires you define us. Weve been conditioned not to do that, but awakening to the fact that we must is essential. That is the higher form of question: and that is what this is about, and why we must care. And act. This book is about vision. It goes through all of the world history books written from ancient times to the present to see what kind of meaning they ascribed to the human story as a whole. It analyzes the causes of our collective social progress, with the aim of restoring vitality to those countries of the Western world and beyond, which are experiencing demoralization and cultural malaise. What emerges is a scintillating philosophical justification for space exploration. Voltaire, Toynbee, Durant, McNeill, Bentley and another 99 world historians and cultural heroes appear in this volume- so take a plunge into this circumnavigation of the arc of history, reviewed in the following way by some of the best thinkers in their fields: A guy named David Tamm down in Florida has written a terrific book on the history of global histories, and at the end, it has this whomping, stomping, amazing, incredible, anthemic conclusion. By the way, you cant get this book in stores; he hasnt gone to publishers with it yet. Tamms book says that humans need a goal. In fact, they need to be able to thrust themselves at a goal. They need to be able to fling themselves at a goal. They need to be able to march and dance toward a goal. Thats what rouses them in life. And Tamm is right. He is dead right. And his message is urgent. Its what America needs right now. Desperately. We need a goal. -Howard Bloom (Founding board member: National Space Society, The International Paleopsychology Project, etc. , author of Genius of the Beast, Global Brain, etc. ): http: www. howardbloom. net I can think of no other book as comprehensive and ambitious as David Tamms Universal History and the Telos of Human Progress. This encyclopedic book is universal in its coverage of the major world historians from ancient to current times. It is an excellent manual on the historiography of universal historians as well as a careful reflection on the continued validity and future prospects of the idea of progress. -Professor Ricardo Duchesne (University of New Brunswick; author of The Uniqueness of Western Civilization) What a feat! A feat of intellect, humour and human ambitions. -Professor Andrzej Nowak (Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland; Editor of Arcana Magazine): http: www. portal. arcana. pl This item ships from multiple locations.
