Civilization is a uniquely human creation that has been fraught with war, strife, and iniquity. Unfortunately, past mistakes have been repeated over and over again, hindering progress and eventually sweeping civilization away in the course of evolution. Civilization is impossible without refinement. In his latest well-researched treatise Intrinsic to Universe, Tan Kheng Yeang proposes a new socio-political philosophy that, unlike the idealized societies of Plato, More, Rousseau, and Locke, recognizes humanity's innate foibles and offers an innovative presentation for the creation of a new world order. Yeang shares not only the principles of his suggested new civilization, but also a new religious philosophy and fresh ideas for a political, economic, and social system that will challenge old rules and archaic thinking. Also included are critiques of both Eastern and Western civilizations and a careful examination of the modern world. Harmony is essential and chaos is intolerable if life is to be genuinely happy. Intrinsic to Universe provides an in-depth glimpse into a new civilization and encourages curious thinkers to look beyond past mistakes and into a brighter future.
