We Are Different, So What
By Lev Shakhmundes
November 1999, 100 pp
However much we humans developed in the course of evolution, it is illuminating to explore how different we are between ourselves as individuals. The consequences of this fact of Nature permeate all facets of every human society. The book takes a philosophical stance in exploring the implications in democratic and autocratic systems, for the global economy and natural environment, and for the possible future paths of humans on the planet Earth. Specific properties of large dynamic systems play a role in some of the implications.
