Our Tragic Flaw: A Case for Nonviolence By Parke Burgess
eBook (PDF): $2.00
(1 Ratings)
For the first time in the history of life, a single species has acquired the means to destroy itself and all other living things on the planet. This species, of course, is us. How did we come to... More > imperil ourselves? And why do we continue to do so? Is it too late to change course? If not, how can it be done? Looking deeply into these questions, Our Tragic Flaw locates the root cause of our collective perversity in the “logic of violence.” Embedded in our biology, psychology, and culture, this logic is the tragic flaw that threatens humankind. But author Parke Burgess does not accept that this flaw inevitably dooms us to self-destruction. Another way is possible, now as never before. The logic of violence can, in fact, be transcended through a conscious and intentional process of deepening self-awareness, and a corresponding process of sharing power and increasing collaboration in our social relations. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the ultimate fate of our species.< Less
