How Armstrong resuppressed the Axial Age

March 4th, 2007 · No Comments

Having mentioned the Axial Age I am confronted with last year’s disaster book, Karen Armstrong’s The Great Transformation, whose principal effect seems to have been to have made the whole period incomprehensible–just the way the establishment likes it, a wishy-washy sausage treatment that suppresses all the relevant paradoxes of this hard-to-understand period in world history. The promoters of public ideology don’t want you to know that the Axial Age shows something stupendous in action, a something that doesn’t fit into current scientific perspectives, or, for that matter, current religious belief systems.

You can follow an extensive series of discussions of that book on this blog, with some of the links for those at the History and Evolution website. Or click on the Axial Age category, or use the search box.
