Summary:

Charles Eisenstein explores the history and potential future of civilization, tracing the converging crises of our age to the illusion of the separate self. In this limited hardcover edition of Eisenstein's landmark book, he argues that our disconnection from one another and the natural world has mislaid the foundations of science, religion, money, technology, economics, medicine, and education as we know them. It has fired our near-pathological pursuit of technological Utopias even as we push ourselves and our planet to the brink of collapse.

Fortunately, an Age of Reunion is emerging out of the birth pangs of an earth in crisis. Our journey of separation hasn't been a terrible mistake but an evolutionary process and an adventure in self-discovery. Even in our darkest hour, Eisenstein sees the possibility of a more beautiful world--not through the extension of millennia-old methods of management and control but by fundamentally reimagining ourselves and our systems. We must shift away from our Babelian efforts to build ever-higher towers to heaven and instead turn out attention to creating a new kind of civilization--one designed for beauty rather than height. Breathtaking in its scope and intelligence, The Ascent of Humanity is a landmark book showing what it truly means to be human.

'A tour-de-force filled with astounding insight, wit, wisdom and heart.' --Christopher Uhl, author of Developing Ecological Consciousness: Paths to a Sustainable Future

'Quite marvelous, a hugely important work. This book is truly needed in this time of deepening crisis.' --John Zerzan, author of Future Primitive and Elements of Refusal

    A great insight into our evolution and growth as a species. A look at the build up of all the challenges we face. A request to be more concious as we go through life to take all life into consideration instead of just our spieces because we are all connected and we can't continue to consume everything meaningful so unconsciously.
