Summary & Review

"Do Anything Now" by Clément Besneville advocates for a holistic, interdisciplinary school curriculum to develop critically-thinking, well-rounded individuals. Despite scientific truths, ignorance and lack of understanding of intellectual, behavioral, spiritual and mystic concepts have led to confusion, unfounded opinions, misinformation and worsening societal problems. Even though foundational scientific truths exist, disagreements persist. The author aims to present neutral, objective analysis and reflective questions to bridge divides, spark open debate and implement beneficial solutions. Dedicated to positive change, he expresses hope that broad education, instruction and resource access can shape an enlightened, ethical society by applying ancestors’ wisdom.
