Conversing with Evolutionary Leaders about Atlas Shrugged vs. Atlas Hugged

The Evolutionary Leaders is a group of spiritual change agents who share a common narrative of conscious evolution. Our Moment of Choice is a collection of essays by the ELs, including one by myself and Kurt Johnson that describes how the spiritual message of conscious evolution can be combined with “hard” evolutionary science. Of course, that’s also what Atlas Hugged is all about. In addition to my podcast with Kurt on Atlas Hugged, he has organized a series of conversations with some of the other Els that begins with part I.

“A response, and counterproposal, to Ayn Rand’s controversial worldview from a celebrated scientist–in the form of a sequel to her own novel–would be big news. And this is it.”

“This is an incredibly ambitious novel from one of the finest scientific minds on the planet–who just happens to be the son of the great American novelist Sloan Wilson. The goal of Atlas Hugged is nothing short of changing the world by uniting humanity and eliminating suffering. As a reimagined sequel of sorts to Ayn Rand’s famous and influential novel Atlas Shrugged, Wilson’s work is similarly full of philosophical ideas and illustrative parables. It’s didactic in the best sense of that word”
