Discutie cu Howard Bloom (TLP)




Howard Bloom has been called "next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Freud, and Buckminster Fuller" by Britain's Channel4 TV.

His books include

The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Forces of History ("mesmerizing"—The Washington Post),

Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century ("reassuring and sobering"—The New Yorker)

The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism ("an extraordinary book, exhilaratingly-written and masterfully-researched. I couldn't put it down." James Burke).

Bloom has founded three international scientific groups: the Group Selection Squad (1995), which fought to gain acceptance for the concept of group selection in evolutionary biology;

The International Paleopsychology Project (1997), which worked to create a new multi-disciplinary synthesis between cosmology, paleontology, evolutionary biology, and history; and The Space Development Steering Committee (2007), an organization that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell and members from NASA, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense. From 1968 to 1988, Bloom did fieldwork in the world of corporations, mass media, and popular culture. As the founder and CEO first of Cloud Studio, Inc., then of The Howard Bloom Organization, Ltd., Bloom worked with companies like Sony, NBC-TV, CBS, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, EMI, ABC, Gulf and Western, MCA/Universal, Mannesmann, Polygram, Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, and Disney. Bloom helped establish or sustain the careers of Prince, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Bette Midler, Queen, Kiss, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, Billy Idol, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Run DMC and over a hundred others. He advised the strategists putting together a new venture called MTV, he was featured on the cover of Art Direction Magazine, and he was profiled in New York Magazine, which called him the most thorough and efficient publicist in his field. Delta Airlines in-flight magazine went further and called him one of the most powerful people in pop publicity.

No one realized he was a scientist in disguise. Bloom's writings have appeared in The Washington Post, Wired, Knight-Ridder's Financial News Service, The Village Voice, The Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan, Omni Magazine, New Ideas in Psychology, The Independent Scholar, Entelechy—Mind and Culture, Across Species Comparisons and Psychopathology, PhysicaPlus, ArXiv.org and in two book series: Research in Biopolitics and the Disinformation Company's series of three books: You Are Being Lied To, Everything You Know is Wrong, and Abuse Your Illusions
