“Intrinsic to Universe” offers a new perspective on old philosophies and social “isms” that allows the reader to visualize a new social organization that works with rather than against human nature.
PENANG, Malaysia (PRWEB) June 27, 2016
Having always been fascinated by political history and the philosophical thoughts and ideologies that have shaped human destiny, author Tan Kheng Yeang pens “Intrinsic to Universe” (published by Trafford Publishing). The book reveals the creation of a new world order that will enable humankind to climb out of the morass of social chaos, war and environmental destruction in which they find themselves today.
Philosophers such as Plato, More and Locke have appeared sporadically to propose a new order for civilization and to expound on the role of the ideal state in the lives of its citizens. Most of these social orders have failed, or are struggling, because they have an idealized and far from realistic outlook on human nature. With this in mind, the author has laid the foundations of new a philosophy called “Intrinsicalism.” Like many other social systems, respect and personal freedom for the individual and his/her chance to grow and participate in society are at the central core of Intrinsicalism. However, its principles are based on a less idealistic view of human nature and the creation of a new world order that is more intrinsic to the realities of human behavior.
“I want readers to see that it is possible for human civilization to evolve to allow individuals to realize their full potential, while respecting the natural wonders of this planet and the universe at large,” the author says. “I want readers to take away hope for the future of humankind and the world we live in.”
An enlightening and thought-provoking read, “Intrinsic to Universe” offers a new perspective on old philosophies and social “isms” that allows the reader to visualize a new social organization that works with rather than against human nature.
