Pursuit of Complete Knowledge

Never before has humanity known so much about the world in which we live. Yet never before have we faced challenges of such unparalleled magnitude and complexity, which defy solution by existing knowledge. We have greater power of control and mastery over the forces of physical nature, but there is an increasing sense of powerlessness. Never before has humanity possessed so much power – power to interact, communicate, educate, prolong life, entertain and enjoy. Yet never before has the distribution of social power and its fruits been as uneven and inequitable as it is today. A comprehensive research by Garry Jacobs, on the evolution of mind and civilization traces the stages of mental evolution in prehistoric times, the Hellenic period, rule of the Empirical Science, Intellectual Impact and more.
