These past two decades, modern technology has brought into being scores of powerful challenges to our interior peace and well-being. Weâ€™re experiencing a worldwide crisis of attention in which information overwhelms us, corrodes true communion with others, and leaves us anxious, unsettled, bored, isolated, and lonely.
These pages provide the time-tested antidote that enables you to regain an ordered and peaceful mind in a technologically advanced world. Drawing on the wisdom of the worldâ€™s greatest thinkers, including Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas, these pages help you identify â€“ and show you how to cultivate â€“ the qualities of character you need to survive in our media-saturated environment.
This book offers a calm, measured, yet forthright and effective approach to regaining interior peace. Here youâ€™ll find no argument for retreat from the modern world; instead these pages provide you with a practical guide to recovering self-mastery and interior peace through wise choices and ordered activity in the midst of the worldâ€™s communication chaos.
