    Paperback à The Last Myth PDF Ð The Last Kindle - last kindle, myth download, The Last epub, The Last Myth ePUBI wish I could rate this book higher It addresses an important topic and it’s helped me to rethink an unhealthy personal preoccupation The authors clearly put a lot of thought into their subject and their ideas could help readjust the focus of public discourse in the US at a time when we really need it The central thesis here is that apocalyptic thinking has commandeered our psychological approach to a number of national and global challenges and it leads us to obsess about moments yet to come when we should be considering trends that are manifest in the here and now The authors structure a coherent argument for why this might be so and although the historical exposition is overly simplistic I found The Last Myth to be persuasive on the wholeIt’s a shame then that it contains such glaring flaws Firstly there’s a serious proble

    Paperback à The Last Myth PDF Ð The Last Kindle - last kindle, myth download, The Last epub, The Last Myth ePUBJust realized I never got around to reviewing this book Now where did my copy that Goodreads First Reads sent me run off to? Ah There it isNow this book claims that it talks about how Apocalyptic thinking has changed Western Culture and how exactly that it came to be so prevalent I don't think it very effectively tackled the first point However I think that the theory behind the second point was fascinating In our ancient past there was no such thing as novelty Nothing that people did or thought was original it was accepted that they were reliving lives of those that had come before them Endings in their mythology was not the important parts of the myths the important part of the myth

    Paperback à The Last Myth PDF Ð The Last Kindle - last kindle, myth download, The Last epub, The Last Myth ePUBMatthew Gross paints an interesting picture of human history in this book In particular he argues that the major force in 21st century culture is the belief that the end is nigh More accurately what is driving or stifling our civilization is the belief that the future is both inevitable and cataclysmic He swiftly blows through the rise of this

    Paperback à The Last Myth PDF Ð The Last Kindle - last kindle, myth download, The Last epub, The Last Myth ePUBThis was a good fast read but I was expecting something a bit from it Which perhaps points to the space it leaves open for another academic book of its kind Some incredible factoids some good research and thinking but I think there's work to be doneThe book focuses not so much on apocalyptic thinking or apocalyptic culture persay but does a very good job of mapping apocalyptic thinking's rise and links it with global history and trends about the belief of time Instead of getting at culture the authors ultimately try to point to some of the consequences of such thinking Written from a very liberal and welcome point of view they believe that apocalyptic responses to global problems and change especially through and
