Future Primal

an interview with Louis G. Herman

Louis_HermanDr. Louis G. Herman, professor of political science at the University of Hawai‘i – West O‘ahu, has recently published “Future Primal: How our Wilderness Origins Show us the Way Forward”, a stunning book that responds to the multiple crises of globalized humanity by recovering the classical project of political philosophy—the truth quest—as “the search for the best way to live.” The story of the philosopher’s personal search becomes an entry into “big history:” the epic narrative of contemporary cosmology, of the emergence of creative, self-reflective humanity from a southern African wilderness, on an evolving planet within an evolving universe.

Louis speaks with Joanna about: “future primal”; growing up in the garden of Eden; ecstatic memories of the wilderness; experiencing the Dreamtime; reconciling scientific cosmology and direct experience; an ongoing Mystery; a seeing waking up to itself; a connective story.

She is a founder and member of the Santa Barbara Conscious Evolution Community.

She worked closely with Dr. Jonas Salk and was one of the original contributors to the Salk Institute.

In the 1970’s she co-founded The Committee for the Future in Washington D.C., which developed the New Worlds Educational and Training Center based on her work. She co-produced 25 SYNCON conferences to bring together people from every field and function to seek common goals and match needs and resources in the light of the growing edge potentials of humanity. She was one of the original directors of the Center for Soviet American Dialogue and served as a citizen diplomat during the late 1980’s. She was awarded the first Doctorate in Conscious Evolution by Emerson Institute.

Dr. Hubbard’s books include Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential, Emergence: The Shift from Ego to Essence, The Evolutionary Journey: Your Guide to a Positive Future, and Revelation: A Message of Hope for the New Millennium.
