Society in the West is now at a crossroads, and is facing a stark choice – to evolve or degenerate. In these timely essays Advayacitta explores the predominant ideas and beliefs that have shaped modern Western society, and which have come from classical thought, Christianity and physical science. He looks at how these have had both beneficial and harmful effects.
As a basis for healthy evolution, he discusses the beginnings of a radical alternative to deeply flawed, harmful Western ideas that come particularly from the nineteenth century – ideas that underpin much academic thinking, as well as the entire political spectrum. This alternative is rooted in both the Buddha’s vision and the best in Western thought.
