And, what is so visionary and important is that Maxwell begins to suggest where we are all headed; what type of mentality might come next, and whether both the mythological, rational and other orientations might not only need each other but need to transcend themselves into a new paradigm, which he also suggests. He gets across visceral and essentials truths about our world, and the content of the perceptual "modern" paradigm that we take for granted..
As for what resonated with me personally--I take it to the political yet this is not primarily a book about politics--but is about so much more As hard as things are these days, this book, out in 2017, gives me great hope for what's to come.
Though Maxwell traces the roots of his ideas to Jung, James, Whitehead, Tarnas and others, I really don't know how he came up with all of this in quite the way he did. As you may gather from my review, I'm grateful... Suffice to say that when a writer as brilliant as Maxwell tackles these complex aspects of the human condition, it is a literary moment to be cherished.
Some of the book is very difficult, some of it dealing with long debated issues and unresolved matters. The Introduction is particularly tough as it summarizes information that is not easy to compact into a paragraph or two. Don't let that scare you off, there is a lot here that doesn't require years of prior involvement in this area of thought to understand and incorporate into your own worldview.
