THE WORLD IS TOO MUCH WITH ME Finding Private Space in a Wired World

by | Read by Alan Lightman

Personal Growth • 1 hr. • Audio Program • © 2003

A teacher of astrophysics and humanities and a poet and novelist on the human condition, Alan Lightman offers a thoughtful polemic on how technology and capitalism have been leading us around by the nose. We work harder and longer, spend more money, and have less control than at any time in the past. We've also stopped asking questions about our emotional and spiritual well-being and about what's good for humanity. With ideas that would sound hackneyed in any other hands, the audio combines a considerable intellect with a Thoreau-like wish for more balance in the wired world. A magical piece that every technocrat-capitalist and compulsive technocrat should hear. T.W.
