The Logical and Necessary Starting Point for Global Recovery

Most people are alarmed and eager to help resolve the chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is experiencing; but feel overwhelmed by the magnitude and complexity of the present economic-social-political system — because one hardly knows where to begin.


This book, Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature, provides the logical and necessary starting point for the urgent and vitally important global recovery effort: A shift in the way we define ourselves and the purpose of our life. 


The crux of Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature is our intrinsic, naturally creative essence: Homo Creativus — a fundamental fact of life, and the single most powerful force that drives our behavior and shapes our very being.


Homo Creativus implies that the largely taken-for-granted "rational economic man" (individualistic, self-centered, materialistic, consumption-driven) is, rather and fundamentally, a purpose-driven, potential-actualizing being: naturally and primarily impelled to unfold and to contribute one's natural abilities in meaningful and significant functions — with economic consumption and material well-being as the means to that end.


Analysis and synthesis of the insights that are brought together in Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature suggest that many (probably, most) of the difficulties the world is facing are, fundamentally, a creativity crisis. This is the inability of the vast majority of people to recognize, to develop, and/or to beneficially engage their natural abilities. As a result, widespread sense of futility — meaninglessness — with its attendant psychological, social, economic, political, and ecological problems. 

Creativity. Modern Crises. Climate Change. Environment. Species Loss. Polarization. Politics. Policy

Stirring, sobering, and deeply resonant, Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature sheds valuable new light on the human and planetary condition and, further, points the way out of our present predicament: 

 


Solving these essential but historically overlooked human development needs, Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature thus presents the logical and necessary starting point for the urgently needed planetary recovery and regeneration:

  • necessary for economic development and social progress;

  • necessary for inclusive and truly participatory politics and governance;

  • necessary for accurate understanding and successful resolution of the life-threatening difficulties the world is facing;

  • necessary for building a viable, ecologically-enhancing, humanly-fulfilling planetary future. 


There, precisely, is the context, as well as the message, of Creativity: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature a shift in the way we think about ourselves and the purpose of our life. And, considering the magnitude of the chaos and life-threatening difficulties the world is experiencing, and their ominous implications for the planetary future, setting right the way we define ourselves would seem to be the central project and the "historical mission" of our time!
