MAN THE MASTER by Gerald Heard


Email this review


This seems to be more along the lines of religious thinking than practical problem solving, in its interpretation of world ills and cures. Part one is an examination of the four psychological stages of civilization, showing the case for and against democracies and dictators, pointing out the choices for the future. Part two is a description of anarchy in the four types (man of vision, politician, technician, ""routineer""), and how they can be made to function in the world of tomorrow, through a realization of things spiritual and a rediscovery of the subconscious. His basic theory seems to be that neither politics nor economics can give the answer, since this is a psychological crisis, due to a state of mind.
