Book Tours: Beyond Civilization (Daniel Quinn) (1999)

Episode 29
Available worldwide

The question is posed, were we happier in tribal society than we are in today's world? And, is it possible to operate in the world today with a tribal mentality? We evolved, as a species as tribal people, people who work together to make a living.

The point of this book is not to reform society; rather it is to change society's perspective. In his book, Quinn emphasizes the idea of walking away from the pyramid, and going back to the tribal way to create a community where everyone is supportive of one another.

... that GaiamTV had at least -one- interview of Daniel Quinn somewhere in its vaults. A retrospective on Quinn's 'Ishmael' trilogy would be a most worthwhile & timely topic, even if GaiamTV has to travel to the (now much older) author's residence to do it. Such an opportunity (if granted) should not be missed and time is ticking...
