I enjoyed this book, but am giving it four stars because the contents won't be for every keen nature lover. If you are more inclined to debate philosophy than science, want to sway your fellow human with discourse rather than charts, film footage and statistics, and enjoy expanding your vocabulary, this will be a great book for you. I'm rather more of a practical person.

I have no doubt that the author is sincere in his wish to enact positive change in environments small and large, personal, corp

“A New Republic of the Heart” is a 408 page book on the transformation of civilization in regard to our current global issues. To get the most out of this book, one needs to look at the background of the author.

He is a philosopher, activist, and social entrepreneur. His written works encourage his readers to become activists i ...more

Whilst 'A New Republic of the Heart' is a comprehensive and seemingly all-inclusive commentary on personal revolution and societal change, it is a work that often struggles to deal adequately with the issues that it raises.

The reason for this is that it is a book of concepts; one with a strong sense throughout its pages that it has been produced by a thinker and which is aimed primarily at fellow thinkers. The result is, to my mind, that many of its ideas fail to translate into a more tangible c

Terry Patten's A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries brings Patten's wisdom as a life-long activist into conversation with his desire for a social fabric of the developed world by valuing unconditional love and seeking a happiness to which all humans are entitled.



What is most important to me in the book is Patten's vision of an integral activism on behalf of both nature and culture. Western culture has, for some time, treated the natural world with the destructive inconsider

Much as I enjoy Patten's optimistic, at times ethereal style, I found parts of this frustratingly simplistic. The evolutionary world view is beguiling and empowering but it feels glib without any reference to older world views centred by a profound connection with all life forms. This world view, unless I am merely being sentimental, was a feature of the spirituality of indigenous peoples all over the world. Likewise, the destructive role played by colonial takeovers is glossed over as a good th ...more

I was delighted to read this book. Terry is lucidly integrating many streams of consciousness that I feel passionate about, Consciousness, spirituality, science, social and ecological responsibility. Yet loudest is his respect for the Mystery. He is willing to face reality with clear eyes and a humble open heart. I sense a kindred spirit. We don't yet know the answers, but Terry lives fully into the questions. He is also articulate and shares a deep, many faceted elucidation of our profoundly co ...more

“​The project of integrating human knowledge includes a great body of work that inspects the evolution of the states and structures of interior consciousness, sometimes correlating them with the evolution of exterior physical structures. This work validates the potential for—and, indeed, supports the importance of—awakening into higher states and stages of consciousness.” 0 likes
“Care is not fast-moving like anger. Anger is suddenly right there, ready to mobilize and move—now! Care is a warm, deep reservoir of comforting ​strength and sanity that you can steadily draw upon over time. Care for yourself is the foundation.” 0 likes
