‘The Human Cycle’ is one of Sri Aurobindo's major works on social and political thought. In this book, history and social development are seen through the prism of a natural evolution of both consciousness and forms. Although this text was written a century ago and references historical developments of that era, the wisdom and message of the book are universal and can help us interpret contemporary events meaningfully. Tracing this evolution of the psychology of human societies, Sri Aurobindo offers an integral perspective for understanding the development of the past, leading up to the apparent confusion of the present, and pointing us to the spiritual possibilities and certainties of the future.
