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 (but historically overlooked, undervalued, and colossally wasted) essence as humans — Homo Creativus.
Homo Creativus implies that the largely taken-for-granted "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 significant and meaningful 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 and most distinctive human attribute. As a result, widespread sense of futility (meaninglessness), with its attendant psychological, social, economic, and political problems.
Sobering and illuminating, CREATIVITY: Revealing the Truth about Human Nature thus 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 presents the logical and necessary starting point for the urgently needed planetary recovery and regeneration:
There, briefly, is the context, as well as the message, of 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 life-threatening difficulties the world is facing and their ominous implications for our collective future, setting right the way we define ourselves would seem to be the central project of the global society, the "historical mission" of our time.
