The Eternity Dialogues: Understanding Global Transformation
Designed to both entertain and inform readers, The Eternity Dialogues: Understanding Global Transformation offers students key concepts in individual and global transformation through an engaging, futuristic novel and an accompanying learning-based website. The book envisions a future where humanity is endangered by the Convergence of global survival threats that already are growing today, including ecological collapse, widespread despondency, and preparations for war.
Through the eyes of a young social worker, a group of wise old women, CEOs, clerics, revolutionaries, politicians, and scientists, students see how the world moved towards the 2050 Convergence, and the struggles for power, opportunities for transformation, and global dialogues that followed. The story challenges students to develop consciousness regarding the interrelationship between individual psychology, eco-socio-political issues, and global wellbeing, and offers practical tools for transformation. The companion learning site features chapter summaries, learning objectives, discussion questions, learning scenarios, and more to reinforce key learnings.
Unique and engaging, The Eternity Dialogues is an ideal learning program for courses in many fields, including peace and conflict studies, global issues, social work, political science, psychology, and religious studies.
