How did the Planetary Era come about, and why was it initiated in the European West? What elements in the evolution of the Western worldview might contribute to the actualization of a sustainable planetary culture? Drawing from a wide range of panoptic, or "big-picture," thinkers--from Hegel, Teilhard, Jaspers, and Campbell, to Ken Wilber, Richard Tarnas, and Edgar Morin, among others--the author answers such questions and presents his own synthetic theory of the evolution of consciousness, leading to the birth and transformation of the Planetary Era.
Beginning with a consideration of the fundamental pattern of world history, Sean Kelly reveals the role of a "Great Code" and the turning of a tightening spiral in the evolution of the past two millennia of Western--and increasingly, planetary--consciousness. Along with a vision of the path that has lead to our vexed and complex present, the author offers reason to hope that we are on the threshold of a new countercultural resurgence--a new planetary wisdom culture--that could signal the homecoming for which our troubled world so desperately longs.
