The Philosophy of Civilization available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- University Press of Florida
Ours is a world burgeoning with perennial bumper crops of creative potential, artistic genius, intellectual insight, and conspicuous material affluence. Yet, for decades, much of Western civilization has reaped a bitter harvest of psychological malaise, identity crises, conflicts of purpose, social anxiety, collective frustration, and chronic economic despair. In this fascinating and highly sensitive work, Albert Schwietzer - one of the most compelling social philosophers of this century - analyzes the human condition and offers his thoughts on its recovery through the collective consciousness of life-affirmation grounded on ethical values.
