Biblioteca della Libertà

Abstract

The author addresses the changes in the Western family brought about by individualism. This led to a divergence between the family structures in the West and its other Eurasian cousins which still maintain a form of ‘communalism’ based on joint families, in which many of life’s risks are pooled within the extended family. It is the change in Western cosmological beliefs about “how we should live”, which the author discusses, in a much wider historical and cultural context. This also allows him to speculate on how its new demographic trends might allow the West to return to its ‘pagan’ cosmological beliefs.
