Abstract

Contemporary society needs a new vision beyond the Structuralist worldview of the West leading to a social discourse dominated by binary model of thinking that originated from 18th, 19th and 20th century ideologies in terms of communistic/ socialistic and capitalistic worldviews of society and politics. We can refer to them as x axis or Western Windows approach to society and politics. These worldviews ignored, Culturalist and Spirituality perspectives in socio-political discourse or the y axis of human existence, that in East are referred to as Eastern Doors. Further, a deeper understanding of the Self is also missing in Western windows worldviews. As a result these worldviews have by and large created Selfish Gene leaders in many spheres of human existence, who view reality only through windows

Keywords: Selfish Gene, Cosmic Gene, Sacro-civic Society
