Armageddon or Evolution? by Bernard S. Phillips
Book DescriptionWe are currently experiencing a wide range of evolving problems that threaten us with extinction. However, Phillips argues that we have the capacity-with the aid of a broad approach to the scientific method that builds on Mills's concept of "the sociological imagination"-to confront these problems ever more effectively. This book develops and builds upon new methods for addressing such social problems as global warming, terrorism, growing inequalities, and others. Phillips reveals procedures for achieving conscious evolution by uncovering fundamental assumptions and their contradictions and by moving toward alternative assumptions that promise to resolve these contradictions.

Is there a growing gap in the world between cultural aspirations and their fulfilment, a gap that is increasing social problems of all kinds? Aiming to answer this question, this book shows that a static metaphysical stance or worldview is largely responsible for that gap, and that an alternative worldview can work to close that gap.
