The Human Cycle, The Ideal of Human Unity, War and Self-Determination – Sri Aurobindo

Three works of social and political philosophy by Indian philosopher Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950).

In The Human Cycle, Sri Aurobindo traces the evolution of human society and suggests where it is headed. In The Ideal of Human Unity, he examines the possibility of the unification of the human race. In War and Self-Determination, he discusses the sovereignty of nations in the aftermath of the First World War.

Particularly interesting and relevant to the period of time we find ourselves in is, in ‘The Human Cycle and The Ideal of Human Unity’, where he discusses the idea of a centralized world-State which would ring in an era of mechanical unity or rather uniformity, should it remain unchallenged.
