A 2-3/4 minute video summarizing this book can be viewed below.
A vast amount of information has accumulated in our culture from the works of past generations: great art, myths, philosophy, psychology, and religious traditions. To ignore this hard won information, and instead search for the meaning of life on our own is too difficult.
I have extracted the accumulated wisdom of the past thinkers and artists and have arranged it into an innovative device, the “Prose/Art” Exposition. This exposition is a dynamic synthesis of the intellectual theories of human motivation from the world’s great thinkers, with inspiring validation by the works of great artists. This is the roadmap to happiness, displayed in seven galleries, for everyone to view.
The video below steps you through the book’s “Prose/Art” Exposition format to illustrate the unique synergy between the written words of the great thinkers and the visual art, music, poetry, and dance of the fine arts masters of the last 500 years. The “Prose” section of the book relies upon quotes curated from several books of influential thinkers. The “Art” section contains masterpieces from the most creative artists.
The “Prose/Art Exposition” format is made affordable to all by the latest technology, allowing visual masterpieces and poetry to be presented in the book, and music and ballet/dance performances to be available for viewing in this site.
The book is over 250 pages in length. It contains nearly 40 works of visual art and over 20 works of the world’s greatest poets. It resembles a college appreciation course involving: philosophy, psychology, mythology, religion, art, music, poetry, and dance. These eight disciplines are all that one needs to uncover the proper road to happiness.
