CULTURE, CRISIS AND CREATIVITY,
by Dane Rudhyar>
First published in 1977, Culture, Crisis and Creativity
is an extraordinary vision of existence that explodes the popular myth of cultural omniscience, omnipotence, and permanence, while broadening the meaning and value of art, music and dance. Exposes fascism in art and music, as well as in culture and politics.
There comes a time, suggest Rudhyar, when for the sake of our spiritual heritage, we should consider breaking away from established patterns and values that have been imposed upon us through our culture. 'Spirit creates, culture reproduces.'
