The modern world is a violent place. Millions of humans have been murdered in the name of nationalism, idealism, religion, and greed. Vast amounts of resources and energy have been devoted to weaponry. The power to kill is the measure of political power. It seems the world has lost it way. In Primal Way and the Pathology of Civilization, Dr. Walter Robinson presents a cross-cultural exploration of these deepest issues facing mankind. He investigates the supposition that life was better during past times, and he asks if we can recreate a healthy, viable existence by following the path of indigenous peoples who knew a way of life full of meaning and well-being. Using the foundation of philosophical Taosim, a normative system of understanding, Robinson evaluates society's state of health. Primal Way and the Pathology of Civilization shows that society must heal and it can be accomplished through the primal Way.

Although most traditional economic theory puts the individual at the centre of analysis, more recent approaches have acknowledged the importance of a wider sense of identity as a determinant of individual behaviour. Whether it is ethnicity, religion or gender, group membership is a central part of human life. This book presents new advances in areas which consider both the individual and the group when measuring inequalities and well-being.
