Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. His viral short films and essays online have established him as a genre-defying social philosopher and countercultural intellectual. He is one of the leading voices of the progressive movement and according to Publishers Weekly, he ”will be noted in antiquity as one of the seminal and pioneering storytellers of this new world." Eisenstein graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy. He is the author of Sacred Economics, The Ascent of Humanity, and most recently, A More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible. We ask him some of the unabashedly philosophical questions that keep Earth activists up at night.
