The Ascent of Humanity is a radical exploration of the history and future of civilization, tracing the converging crises of our age to a common source: the ideology of the discrete and separate self. Taking to task the myth of a technological Utopia, author Charles Eisenstein traces the roots and development of our planetary crises through the halls of science, religion, education, medicine, and more. He digs beneath the usual targets of industry and agriculture to identify the origins of separation in everything that makes us human, from language and systems of measure to art and science. While such advances might help free us from natural limitations and improve our comfort and sense of well-being, they simultaneously distance us further and further from nature and each other, ultimately converging in a series of crises that is palpable across the planet. The ascent of humanity, Eisenstein argues, has led us to the brink of collapse. But even in the darkest days, there remains the possibility of a world that was meant to be--and the revolution is already underway. Breathtaking in its scope and intelligence, The Ascent of Humanity is a landmark book showing the possibility of a more beautiful world based on participation and collaboration.
