Passages from Tomorrow
Jeremy D. Johnson, MA
FUTURISM MEETS INTEGRAL PHILOSOPHY in this new work of cultural scholarship. Passages From Tomorrow brings decades of integral philosophy—from Jean Gebser to Sri Aurobindo to William Irwin Thompson—to bear on our contemporary world, making the compelling argument that our cultural narratives are shifting from apocalyptic fear of the future to creative and spiritual re-working. Drawing from examples in contemporary media, tracing new elements of self and world in digital art, and performing philosophical exegesis on science fiction and cinema narratives, Passages attempts to bring integral philosophy in contact with our ever-shifting sense of self and world in the search what Teilhard de Chardin described as the process of “planetization”.
