The Quantum Society: Mind, Physics and a New Social Vision

by

The Quantum Society: Mind, Physics and a New Social Vision Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Quantum Society authors Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall offer a compelling vision for transforming society using the insights of quantum physics to illuminate their ideas. Diversity, they suggest, is the creative evolutionary force, and the more diverse the society, the greater the opportunity for transformation and growth. Their theory of cosmic and social evolution allows us to discover the meaning and purpose of society through an appreciation and understanding of pluralistic thinking. The result is an all-embracing social model that celebrates the dynamic unity that is possible when we work together to orchestrate and articulate our interdependence.

The quantum society is flexible, evolving, and ambiguous. In short, it reflects the idea of society as a living system. The authors use the language of physics to provide the images and metaphors appropriate for understanding the principles that inform this system, bringing into focus our harmonious place within the natural world.

Synopsis:

Drawing on many analogies between quantum reality and the dynamics of self and society, the authors of The Quantum Self take their theory one step further, arguing that we can change our perceptions, values and behavior--the whole of our society--based on the nature of the mind and the universe itself. 25 photos.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 343-352) and index.
