At the Grave of Civilization? A Spiritual Approach to Popular Culture
Today our media-dominated lives are saturated with images, pictures, messages, and information. We have, seemingly, never been so well-informed. But does the insidious materialistic ideology that permeates our civilization allow us truly to understand the phenomena of our time?
Taking a spiritual approach to popular culture, Sevak Gulbekian attempts to penetrate the outer physical appearance of everyday “reality, ” revealing occult forces and influences. His clear and highly readable survey covers the lives of famous personalities, films, television, the music scene, and the question of race in our time.
