Towards Synergism makes a powerful case for understanding the universe as a relational and self-organizing system. The author shows that human civilization serves as the center for the dynamic complexity of the system of our universe. The author encourages us to appreciate this vitally significant role of human civilization by arguing that human creativity, not exchange, is the motivational force for social progress. This book explores the current crisis of the human civilization project and the simultaneous crisis of market and socialist systems. The author draws explicitly on developments in the new science, focusing on unified field theory, complex systems theory, post-Darwinian evolutionary biology, and anthropic cosmology. Mansueto also provides broad comparative historical and comparative sociological evidence. This timely, detailed, and insightful study will prove useful to natural and social scientists from many disciplines, as well as philosophers and theologians, religious, political, and even corporate leaders who are firmly grounded in the philosophical tradition.
