This book explores how our archetypal potential can be dangerously shaped by culture, inadvertently forcing us to live in crazy and destructive ways. Through a a wide ranging discussion of different aspects of human society, history and evolution, Gilbert demonstrates the costly psychological defenses that we use to cope with the reality of suffering and how cultivating compassion can enable us to hone balance, connection, health and the social good.
