Abstract


Introduction
On the world stage, the past five decades have witnessed transformative changes in political and economic dynamics, social structures, values orientations, immigration patterns, technological innovations, human life spans and a host of other change points. These changes are unmatched in magnitude, pace, and power in transforming understandings of our world and ourselves. In response to such fundamental and rapid change, human beings have adapted with varying degrees of success by altering the ways we perceive, think, react, and behave. In doing so we have created a new consciousness and have rewritten many of the rules and values that formerly gave shape and meaning to our lives.
