Hell and High Water: Climate Change, Hope and the Human Condition

by Alastair McIntosh
£8.99   paperback  Birlinn Ltd (2008)

Hell and High Water: Climate Change, Hope and the Human Condition by Alastair McIntosh Climate change may be the greatest challenge the world has ever faced.
 
In this groundbreaking new book, Alastair McIntosh looks at the science of what is happening to the planet today. Politics alone is not enough to tackle the likely scale of global warming. The root lies in our addictive consumer mentality: wants have replaced needs to define our very identity.
 
In a breath-taking journey through myth, philosophy and literature, McIntosh reveals the psychohistory of modernity. He shows how our inner lives have fallen prey to a numbing culture of violence and the motivational manipulation of marketing. To address what has become of the human condition we must learn to see beyond despair and even death. Only then will we discover the spiritual meaning of these, our troubled times; only then can a sense of magic and all that gives life start to mend a broken world.
