The Handbook of New Paradigm Research
The Handbook of New Paradigm Research: A Publication of The Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research, Kindle & Paperback – December 31, 2017
An institute dedicated to research on what it calls “the new paradigm” should make clear what it means by this term, and how it can be researched.
This handbook responds to this challenge. The Handbook of New Paradigm Research outlines in its first part the scheme that is the core of the new paradigm. This scheme responds to questions such as who we are, what the fundamental nature of the world is, and to where we are headed in these critical times.
The second part elaborates on the relevance of the scheme to fields and disciplines such as ecology, medicine and healing, education, politics and economics, and business.
The publication of this handbook is an invitation to its readers to collaborate with The Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research to elaborate on the new paradigm, and explore its application to the fields and questions that shape our life and our future.

The enterprise of science, as a disciplined inquiry into the nature and workings of the world, is coming to affirm many of the intuitively sensed and viscerally known insights long held by various wisdom traditions of spirituality.
By Ignacio Pavez, Lori D. Kendall, Chris Laszlo. The increasingly visible effects of climate change, the degradation of ecological systems, growing income inequality, and high levels of stress and disengagement in the workplace have dramatically increased corporate awareness of the need for integrating sustainability into business strategy. However, the focus of this awareness has largely emphasized finding ways to reduce the firm’s harmful impact from “bad” to “less bad” (e.g., when a company cuts its CO2 emissions by 50%). While this helps firms be less unsustainable, it diverts their focus from creating a more flourishing world, a place where people everywhere live in healthy communities, prosper, and can live life to the fullest. We propose that it is time for leaders to shift their thinking, and for companies to refocus their efforts, from reducing harm to making a positive impact, which we define as increasing economic prosperity while contributing to a healthy regenerative natural environment and improving human well-being.
Reconnecting to the Source is a powerful new book on the science of spiritual experience by Dr. Ervin Laszlo. A well-known figure in the fields of new science, consciousness, and spirituality, Dr. Laszlo has inspired some of today’s most important figures in science and philosophy. In Reconnecting to the Source he unpacks the science behind spiritual experience, investigating the ways in which we can access realms of experience beyond the everyday. It is in these moments, when our conscious minds are in contact or perhaps even overridden by our unconscious selves, that we can explore the depths of spiritual meaning.
World Futures: The Journal of New Paradigm Research provides a venue for leading edge, creative, transdisciplinary contributions. It encourages the application of new ways of thinking and approaches that draw on the intersection of the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities.
