“In this era, values of cooperation, interdependence and sustainability will emerge. This optimistic scenario is as evidence-based as today’s widespread fear or pessimism.”


A New Reality: Human Evolution for a Sustainable Future provides a scientific basis for recognizing that the current confusion and cultural conflict humanity is experiencing is neither predetermined nor our destiny but is, instead, part of a natural evolutionary process. The book shows us that a fact-based understanding of present conditions can lead us to a new reality reflecting interdependency, collaboration, and concern for the well-being of the many.
