Western Civilization in the 21st Century Hardback
This book took the task of conceptualising Western civilisation in the 21st century.
It examines Western Civilisation and its encounters from a viewpoint of the impact of rising Global civilisations in the 21st century.
This political and technological success of Western civilisation in the last 500 years triggered a dream of spreading around the globe Democracy and liberal Capitalism.
Western society was held together by Christian morality (regardless whether someone was a believer or a non-believer or agnostic).
The medicine for all shortcomings faced by Western civilisation in the 21st century is offered by Al Gore in his book "The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change" (2013).
He thinks that inventions and technology will save Western civilisation.
The author of this book argues that vice versa, the rise of certain technologies are the main reason for the decline of Western civilisation.
These kind of issues will be investigated in this book and the message is not optimistic, since Westerners, when are poor are wise, and when are better off are stupid.
Hence, without practicing wisdom, Western civilisation cannot be revived.
