Third Harmony: Nonviolence and the New Story of Human Nature


Add your own review!

Overview

That the world needs to take a substantially new direction, and quickly, is no longer controversial for any thoughtful person. A whole new way of seeing the world and our role in its destiny is called for. It's what Michael Nagler and others call the New Story. It rejects the mechanical, capitalist narrative that pits humans against each other and instead turns to a connected and collaborative vision of the future. The final missing piece of the New Story is what Nagler has termed the Third Harmony in human nature- nonviolence. Nonviolence is the only method compatible with the New Story's content and the only power strong enough to move the heart toward this deep and revolutionary change. This book focuses on how a shift to a nonviolence mind-set can be integrated into the very foundations of our understanding of humanity and community, not just on how nonviolence works as a protest tactic.

Professor Nagler is a trusted interpreter of my grandfather's life and message. In this book he reveals the unique importance of Gandhiji's great discovery of nonviolence for our time and brings out its indispensable role in the shift to a sustainable civilization on which our life, and possibly all life on earth, now depends. --Rajmohan Gandhi, Professor, University of Illinois Coming from his deep understanding of Gandhian nonviolence, he identifies missing elements in our development of a 'new story, ' especially where we fail to focus on our inner being ('third harmony') and find there the precious resource of metta (nonviolence) that the Buddha and all the great teachers tell us lies within. May every lover of life read and be empowered by this passionate and compelling book. --Joanna Macy, author of Coming Back to Life A powerful 'new story' rooted in wholeness is being called forth! Michael Nagler's important and groundbreaking new book is an insightful exploration and guide for the social healing and transformational possibilities urgently needed for these times! --Belvie Rooks, coauthor of I Give You the Springtime of My Blushing Heart
