Manuscripts
The Being of Art and the Art of Being, 225 pages. Unpublished manuscript. The Biology of Freedom. A work in progress that explores the nature of human freedom and transformation in accordance with the latest theories of evolution and the new biology. The book shows how our search for meaning and freedom is built into our nature as part of our evolutionary adaptation. It argues for a new science and philosophy of living wholes, which, in turn, provides the foundation for any holistic medicine and the principles of its practice.
