Tyringham, MA (PressExposure) September 09, 2012 -- Today, at a time when the nation is becoming more and more divided, when anger and antagonism are percolating everywhere, plenty of exploitative politicians, writers and media personalities are cheerfully stirring people up with sarcasm, calls to arms, and simplistic, half-baked 'solutions' to America's problems.
Andrew Cort, who describes himself as a Liberal Democrat, has written a new book on American politics and culture, THE AMERICAN PSYCHE IN SEARCH OF ITS SOUL: FREEDOM, EQUALITY, AND THE RESTORATION OF MEANING, that takes a much needed different approach. In his Foreword, famed Conservative author and social commentator George Gilder says: "This learned and inspirational book rescues philosophy from the mathematicians, sex from the hedonists, religion from empty sanctimony, and science from barren materialism."
"I wrote THE AMERICAN PSYCHE IN SEARCH OF ITS SOUL," the author states, "for people who are not willing to be swayed by either the fundamentalist ultra-right or the atheistic ultra-left, but are searching for thoughtful analyses of contemporary problems and thoughtful solutions that respect both the rational mind of Americans and the spiritual heart of Americans."
Just in time for the current presidential election season, Cort hopes to help lift the level of our national conversation. He believes the book will be of value to citizens who are politically savvy, concerned about their families, concerned about their local communities as well as the entire international community, and are ready for a return to civility, cooperation, and that magnificent cultural flowering of beauty, wisdom and spirit that was the dream of the American Founders.
