Books by Dane Rudhyar
THE PLANETARIZATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
This is Rudhyar’s major philosophical and psychological work, the concentrated outcome of a lifetime concerned with the most basic problems of human existence and the meaning of radical social-cultural crisis mankind is experiencing. Rudhyar has been for years an apostle of world integration based on the interpretation of Eastern and Western concepts and attitudes to life. He sees emerging a global society, and through the worldwide interaction of all cultures, a new type of “planetary” consciousness which for the first time will reveal in its fullness the potential of man.
“The holistic world-view which I present here is meant to be an incentive to think greater thoughts, to feel deeper, more inclusive feelings, and to act as “agents” for the Power that structures human evolution—however we wish to image this power.” —RUDHYAR
The Planetarization is essentially an act of faith in Man. Man as a microcosm of the universe. Man as a reality that transcends the physical organism, all localisms and nationalisms, and in whom spirit and matter can unite in a “Divine Marriage” productive of ever new and greater creative tomorrows.
“I am particularly pleased because Rudhyar’s whole trend of thought is in the spirit of psychosynthesis. From different starting points and using a different terminology he arrives at the same basic conclusion on important issues such as: harmonizing the opposites in individuals and in society; the central importance of purpose; the need of a new humanistic psychology.” —Roberto Assagioli
