Overview

Outlines how a new working partnership between psychologists and evolutionary systems scientists can help create a more humanistic evolutionary theory.

Working to achieve the dream of the great spiritual and scientific visionaries, an international and multidisciplinary group of advanced evolution theorists explores how a new morally sensitive and action-oriented theory of human evolution can help guide our species through troubled times to reach a higher plateau for humanity. The Great Adventure probes how chaos and complexity theories, new brain research, studies of child development, new theories of creativity and consciousness, and other neglected social and systems science discoveries cumulate to reveal a new full-spectrum, action-oriented theory. The book outlines how a new working partnership between psychologists and evolutionary systems scientists can meet a pivotal challenge for the twenty-first century. In addition to describing how to build such a theory, the book includes outlines for distance learning studies.
