Emerson vs. the logicians

Logic works with the known and can be callous. It may be why the world is such a mess right now. On a deeper level, we need to consider kindness, compassion and love. They may not make you rich, but they are healing. I’m reminded of what a scientist (Gus Speth) said: “The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy . . . and to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation . . . and we scientists don’t know how to do that.”
