The doctor has Taken the Pulse of our Modern Way of Life, and concluded that it is very sick-perhaps terminally ill. How did this dangerous state of affairs come to be? And-is there a cure?

In this ground-breaking book, noted Chilean-born psychiatrist and consciousness pioneer Dr. Claudio Naranjo, who first created descriptions of the Enneagram character types, now applies over 30 years of transformational work with individuals and groups to the societal realm, to heal our collective illness.

His diagnosis? "The great problem of civilization is none other than civilization itself," he declares. Its root cause? Patriarchy: a condition that is deeper, wider, and closer to home than you know. For patriarchy thrives not only in the outer world (the economy, war, racism, child abuse, oppression of women, human rights violations) but also in the workings of our own conditioned mind. A virus that masquerades as ourselves, it is killing life on the planet- and within us.

The remedy? To transform our consciousness by integrating and finding balance within our own "intra-psychic family"-our "three brains," corresponding to the "Inner Father," "Inner Mother," and "Inner Child"-through a new Education oriented to personal and collective evolution. For healing civilization is an inside job - and the future of true civilization is in our hands.
