Evolution isn't what it used to be : the augmented animal and the whole wired world by Walt Anderson( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What if everything changed and nobody noticed?" Walter Truett Anderson muses in this energetic, intelligent, and strikingly original book, examining the convergence of the biosciences with electronic technologies and the evolutionary impact these developments will have on human life and society. Anderson's task, he maintains, is to convince us that this "bionic convergence" is already happening to us and the world we inhabit. In revealing the capacity of genetic research, environmental management, industrial processes, and information resources that will augment human life, Anderson asks us to consider the questions of ethics and equity that undoubtedly accompany this transition. As new resources emerge, how will we distribute them equally? And what new structures, skills, and values must we develop in order to thrive amidst a staggering range of options?

The truth about the truth : de-confusing and re-constructing the postmodern world by Walt Anderson( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One can rarely read or hear commentary on art, popular culture, society, literature, or politics these days without being confronted by the mysterious term 'postmodern.' Unlike any other artistic, critical, or philosophical movement in history, postmodernism has come charging out of the ivory tower and into the minds and mouths of the public. The postmodern lens is now the one through which we all are expected to be able to view the world, but how many of us know what this really means? The tenets of postmodernism are much more than a trendy system of thought or an academic dialogue. Rather, they offer practical tools for coming to terms with a world composed of vast amounts of unsettling information, daily interactions with unfamiliar cultures and beliefs, and a continuous and overwhelming set of choices. [This book] is a stimulating and accessible exploration of the complexities of postmodern thought--constructivism, deconstruction, irony, pluralism, multiculturalism--as diverse as the world it describes. Readers will discover the roots of postmodernism, what it does to cultural symbols and differences, and how it affects psychology, religion, and science in essays both profoundly serious and thoroughly entertaining. [The editor] acts as a guide to this difficult terrain by leading readers through each essay, describing new and provocative ideas in detail, dispelling confusion, and, most important, showing what this thinking has to offer everyone. [This book] is an indispensable handbook for the new cultural literacy of our emerging postmodern world"--
The next enlightenment : integrating East and West in a new vision of human evolution by Walt Anderson( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The next enlightenment, Walter Truett Anderson treats Eastern spiritual traditions and Western philosophy, psychology and science as steps along the same evolutionary path rather than as completely separate and incompatible schools of thought. In the opening chapters, he looks at five different "Liberation Movements" that emerged in the modern world: the eighteenth century European Enlightenment; the nineteenth century upheaval resulting from the publication of Darwin's Origin of Species; and in the twentieth century, existentialism, psychoanalysis, and the human potential movement of the 1960s and 1970s. He then argues that this century's next surge of thought and action will regard the exploration of the physical universe and the study of human consciousness as two sides of the same coin, and equally important, come to understand personal enlightenment as a natural process of growth rather than a supernatural gift bestowed upon a chosen few. Elegantly argued and written with a sense of humor, The next enlightenment offers a refreshing vision of how the ancient quest for enlightenment is taking on new life in a rapidly-changing, globalizing world

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Truett Anderson considers ideas about the self that have been held by poets and philosophers in the past, and that are held by people in other societies today, and then takes us on a tour of challenges to the modern Western concept of self that are now emerging from various fields of contemporary thought and action - cognitive science, medicine, cyberspace, economics, global politics, spirituality, and more - where assumptions about personal identity are being profoundly reexamined and new ways of experiencing human life are being invented

Learning to seek : globalization, governance, and the futures of higher education by Roberto Brambilla( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The accelerating technological transformation in learn- ing has necessitated an ability to search and differentiate among the one billion web pages, libraries, databases, books, newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations, and opinion columns available online. This volume focuses on the normative challenges that the current technological transformation presents to all professionals engaged in higher education. Part I concentrates on the current social and technological trends. David Snyder presents an outline of technologies that have made open knowledge systems possible. Majid Tehranian argues that the new technological environment has made learning to seek out information more possible than ever before. Robert Fuller calls for an egalitarian rather than hierarchical approach to communication systems. Harlan Cleveland proposes integrative learning, broad thinking, and globally aware citizenship through "education for wisdom." Part II focuses on problems of governance and finance in the new technological environment. John Hinchcliff takes up the problem of values and argues for the maintenance of traditional altruistic rather than Promethean goals. Karou Yamaguchi comes to the problem of the futures with the tools of system dynamics. William Bergquist calls for a reorganization of higher education to meet the needs for creation, transfer, and inculcation of knowledge and skills. Hamid Shirvani calls for the core values of transparency, integrity, open communication, and dignitarian approach as the guideposts in educational leadership. Walter Truett Anderson concludes by attempting to bring the complex technological, social, economic, and political variables into a holistic approach for the management of higher education. In 2005, at the Universities of the Future Conference, participants were asked to envision the future of higher education. Part III, presents their visions."--Provided by publisher
