9780140264647: The Unconscious Civilization

This work argues that the West now toils unconsciously in the grip of a stifling "corporatist" structure that serves the needs of business managers and technocrats, as it promotes the segmentation of society into competing interest groups and ethnic blocks.

Book Description Penguin Books, 1997. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Near new book, unread with slight shelfwear. the paradox of our situation is that knowledge has not made us conscious. Instead, we have sought refuge in a world of illusion where language is cut off from reality, Reconnecting language to reality, calrifying what we mean by individualism and democracy, making these realities central to the citizen's life.
