In his most recent book, Democracy and Self-Organization: The Change of Which Barack Obama Speaks
, Dr. Robert Aziz
draws on his depth understanding of human psychology and culture to provide us with unprecedented insight into the dynamics of meaning underlying Barack Obama’s politics of change. Conclusions reached about our current cultural crisis of meaning in his previous work The Syndetic Paradigm: The Untrodden Path Beyond Freud and Jung
(2007) form the basis of this incisive analysis. In Democracy and Self-Organization: The Change of Which Barack Obama Speaks
, carefully and systematically, directly and substantively connecting the profound leadership initiatives of President John F. Kennedy and Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to his thesis, Dr. Aziz
convincingly situates the change of which Barack Obama speaks within the context of the now urgent demands of democratic culture’s unfolding destiny.
