For centuries, “nobles” were defined by a mistake of birth; the privileged situations they came from. The nobility of today, however, usually come from ordinary backgrounds but have never been ordinary themselves, even as children. Instead members of the “New Nobility” are defined by where they are headed–into the future. How do the hardy characters of these modern leaders and innovators develop? Humanity must answer this question, as these daringly different individuals play a crucial role in the evolution of our shared culture and civilization. Their ability to break outside the box and find new solutions is increasingly necessary in an era of economic collapse, global warming, international conflict, and a wide array of other serious and growing crises.
The Pursuit of Nobility: Living a Life That Matters speaks directly to the soul of these “bringers of the new”–people who have climbed the ladder of success, found themselves at or near the top, and still hunger for real meaning–as well as those who opted out and have never been able to “mimic” the ideas and customs of the culture. In either case they are haunted by the thought that they might not ever create real change that leaves a lasting mark on society. The new nobles ache for nurture, fellowship, and encouragement in their pursuits, and Tim Daniel hits the spot in his incisive and fearless book.
The Pursuit of Nobility shows us how to make the most of the real transformative types already in our midst, to nurture their risky ideas, encourage their dreams, accelerate their development, and bring the full force of their stunning contributions to fruition to secure the future of our species on this planet.
