Description

"Our time is the age of postmodernity and of the clash of epochs. But a new age of humanity is rising. It is evolutionity or the evolutionary epoch which replaces modernity and postmodernity."





Tractatus Politico-Philosophicus (Political-Philosophical Treatise) aims to establish the principles of good governance and of a happy society, and to open up new directions for the future development of humankind. W. Julian Korab-Karpowicz demonstrates the necessity of, and provides a guide for, the redirection of humanity. He argues that this paradigm shift must involve changing the character of social life and politics from competitive to cooperative, encouraging moral and intellectual virtues, providing foundations for happy societies, promoting peace among countries and building a strong international community.



Korab-Karpowicz’s seven principles for a happy society are:







  • Cooperation






  • Justice






  • Wise Leadership and Civic Virtues






  • Education for Virtue and Knowledge






  • Good Laws






  • Political Knowledge






  • Continuity of Generations
