Civilisation: Its Cause and Cure

Civilisation: Its Cause and Cure
by Edward Carpenter

Publisher: George Allen & Unwin Ltd. 1921
Number of pages: 305

As a philosopher Carpenter is particularly known for his publication of Civilisation, Its Cause and Cure in which he proposes that civilisation is a form of disease that human societies pass through. Civilisations, he says, rarely last more than a thousand years before collapsing, and no society has ever passed through civilisation successfully. His 'cure' is a closer association with the land and greater development of our inner nature.
