This book offers a unique service for meeting the challenge of building a better world, providing concepts and principles drawing on science as well as spirituality. These are compass points for navigating uncharted waters on which we are currently entering. It will be of interest and value to all who recognize the challenge of building a better world, and are ready to start building it.​
Today we have an opportunity to create a new future. We are moving out of the aftermath of a global crisis and face the task of rebuilding our world. But, do we have to “re-build” it in the strict sense of building it as it was — or can we build another world, a better world. This possibility exists, and it poses an unprecedented challenge.​
There are no historical precedents for consciously setting about building a new world, building a different culture. We have to find our own way. For this, we need all the guidance we can get. Dawn of an Era of Well-Being explores practical approaches toward building a better world, an era of true well-being. It explores contemporary approaches both from the West - based on science — and from the East - drawing on a rich ancient tradition. It also offers a number of insights from remarkable individuals regarding the pillars of a better world, and how to build on them. ​
Humankind today is facing monumental challenges. We know now, more than ever before, that we must change or perish. Worldviews are the foundation of culture, and the challenges we face have presented us with an opportunity to move to a new worldview linking ancient and modern, East and West, science and spirituality. Contemporary Philosopher Frederick Tsao and World-renowned philosopher Ervin Laszlo presents Dawn of An Era of Well-Being, a book that explores the importance of the quest to understand the purpose of life—of your life and all life on Earth, as well as provide ideas that will be of practical value as the human community sets about the monumental task of building a better world.​
