For St. Augustine history was the education of the human race in the stages of our own lives. By adding to that inspired insight ideas from G.W.F. Hegel and Abraham Maslow and from chaos theory -- ideas that St. Augustine himself did not live to see -- this book describes our Western history as an aging process of growing up toward an inner freedom of maturity for both nations and people.

Jackson’s book updates the views of eighteenth century historian Giovanni Battista Vico in his Scienza Nuova on how the development of peoples in history can be understood by comparing their experiences across different times. Author Jackson then provides fresh insights into the stages of growth and decline in the development of Western civilization which moved our history toward the goal of a good life and the pursuit of happiness.

After 91 plus years of living, Roy V. Jackson can confirm Emerson’s saying, “All life is an experiment. The more the better.” Jackson’s own experiments began in 1918 on his father’s farm in the mountains of British Columbia and from there included: chemistry and civil law degrees from the Universities of British Columbia and from McGill; stage and lighting managing in college and community theaters and in Vancouver’s Theater in the Park (for tuition money); infantry instructing; motorcycle dispatch riding; and battle training as a lieutenant in the Canadian Army. Jackson has been an international patent attorney in Toronto, Delaware and New York for DuPont, Johnson & Johnson and Hercules. He holds memberships in the Bars of Quebec and Ontario, the Council of Episcopal Dioceses of New York, the Inter-Parish Council of Midtown Manhattan, and the World Future Society.
