The Book Review
The subject of Goitsemang’s book is no less than the totality of things. He argues, persuasively, that all the apparently diverse elements and processes of existence are deeply connected and interacting. This belief continues to be espoused by many of the world’s great thinkers and is entrenched in various philosophical systems.
‘Holism’ is one of the rallying cries of the modern age, and ours is an age that desperately needs a system of unifying principles and ideas if the planet’s diverse peoples are to find each other and emerge intact from the difficulties that surround us and may destroy us.
There are nuggets of wisdom scattered throughout the book. Goitsemang’s examples range through the full gamut of human experience, and the underlying message is simple and reassuring – harmony is the mainspring of the integral world. This message is sorely needed, and Mr Mabiletsa is deeply committed to conveying it.”
