Breakdown or Breakthrough?
We are at a critical juncture in history, a "decision-window" where we face the danger of global collapse--or the opportunity for global renewal. Written by Ervin Laszlo, the founder of systems philosophy and general evolution theory, The Chaos Point provides a concise overview of the present world situation, showing where we are and how we got here.
According to Laszlo, for the next six to seven years--roughly until the end of 2012--we have the opportunity to head off trends that would lead to a critical tipping point. Beyond this "chaos point," we either evolve to a safer, more sustainable world, or the social, economic, and ecological systems that frame our life become overstressed and break down.
The 2012 chaos point need not be the end of the world, but it will certainly be the end of the kind of world we have created. In today’s decision-window, we have a unique chance to break through to a new world. This pioneering book tells us what this new world can look like and how each of us can help to achieve it.
The Chaos Point is a healing book. It not only identifies the nature of the malady every person and every society now suffers from, but offers a cure.
