We are in the midst of the most dramatic cultural shift in three hundred years. THis book explains why great change is simmering in all facets of our civilization, from economics and politics to science and spirituality. Our inherited concept of a mechanistic world -- a clockwork universe -- is giving way and the vision of a web world is rising to take its place. Goernerexplains the new and profound rethinking emerging across modern science, from anthropology to physics. The author then weaves current realities into these new scientific insights to create a fascinating vision of history and science progressing through upheavals and rebirths to the present day. Humankind too, is ound into the patterns and processes of this web world, and Goerner describes the already visible signs of an emerging Integral Society in which head, heart and soul need no longer be at odds. Integral culture has the potential to build a more sustainable and peaceful civilization. Yet, all great change comes as a result of pressure and the author warns that our present social and economic systems are already becoming unstable. If we do not integrate the core lessons of the web world -- learning, collaboration, and intricacy -- into our ways of life, we face the specter of collapse.

Has the modern scientific world robbed our lives of a deeper sense of meaning and purpose? Has science rendered God irrelevant? Or can science actually bring us towards a deeper spiritual understanding and a greater sense of joy in our daily lives? Space scientist and physicist Anthony Mannucci explores these questions from a unique point of view. He begins by stating the obvious: everyone wants a sense of purpose and meaning to their lives. How to achieve it? Dr. Mannucci’s narrative takes us down a path where science is a starting point for something deeper. He reveals an Absolute Truth that is central to science and to our nature as spiritual beings. Dr. Mannucci expertly explains the power and the limitations of science. He reveals that science and spirituality are not distant cousins but in fact share a bond. What follows is an exploration of mind, and how exploring the nature of mind leads us to a deeper appreciation of our spiritual nature. Dr. Mannucci shows how the right words and ideas can change your life. In concluding the book, Dr. Mannucci discusses the importance of mystery and awe, two emotions familiar to every scientist. You will find the ideas in this book original and refreshing, conveying a message of hope and joy. Those who embrace these words will not regret their decision.

What is, what was the human? This book argues that the making of the human as it is now understood implies a renegotiation of the relationship between the self and the world. The development of Renaissance technologies of difference such as mapping, colonialism and anatomy paradoxically also illuminated the similarities between human and non-human. This collection considers the borders between humans and their imagined others: animals, women, native subjects, machines. It examines border creatures (hermaphrodites, wildmen and cyborgs) and border practices (science, surveying and pornography).
