Positing that modern society is an adolescent culture, driven by greed and power and lying on the cusp of an era of spiritual
growth and shifting values, this book explores mythic themes in various historical eras to explain the past, present, and
future of the human experience. It suggests that the world is facing a rite of passage into adulthood and that a time of co-operation,
stabilisation, and sharing is approaching. With an original theory of history based on developmental psychology, including
an analysis of masculine and feminine archetypes, this thoughtful guide weaves the narratives of human history and individuals'
experiences into a path of enlightenment and a way to catalyse social change.
