Tikkun Olam: Repair / Perfect the World - Judaism, Humanism & Transcendence by David Birnbaum and Martin S Cohen
This is the second book of the anticipated 10-volume Mesorah Matrix series and is called: Tikun Olam; Repair/Perfect the World: Judaism, Humanism and Transcendence. Mesorah Matrix is a major - and potentially landmark - intellectual-spiritual-philosophical endeavor. The plan well-underway is to publish 10 separate books - each on a very focused Jewish theme - under the Mesorah Matrix umbrella. By the end of 2013, over 130 leading authors/essayists globally will be involved in the decade-spanning project. The focused-purpose and raison d'etre of the series is to more fully draw-out the spiritual and transcendent embedded within Judaism. These are sometimes referred-to as Elyonoth or "Higher-Sphere" themes. The intent of the quite-unique 10-volume series is to be "transformational." There will be a total of 2-3 renowned independent editors, each responsible for multiple books/themes.
The Editor-in-Chief of the over-all series is David Birnbaum of Manhattan, author of the Summa Metaphysica philosophy series (independent of Mesorah Matrix). Mesorah Matrix, in turn, is under the greater umbrella of New Paradigm Matrix Publishing which exclusively publishes "new paradigm" works - in metaphysics, philosophy, history and now, spirituality. Works by New Paradigm Matrix are Course Texts at major universities around-the-world. Summa Metaphysica was the focus of a 4-day international academic conference April 2012 at Bard College.
