Natural Order: Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis in Human Evolution (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 6, 2018) is a rather broad philosophical essay explaining on the basis of the author's more than thirty years of research on human emotions and sexuality how, in accordance with the philosophical framework of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831), three distinct phases can be made out in human evolution that Hegel called thesis, antithesis, and synthesis.The thesis was the ancient natural order as carried forward from matriarchal cultures from the Paleolithic up until early patriarchy, about 5000 years ago, when native cultures lived their lives in an integral and sane manner, peacefully and in alignment with nature's wisdom. The antithesis, then, was basically the last five thousand years of patriarchy. The essay shows that phenomena like pathological codependence between parents and children, emotional abuse, repression and perversion, the disintegration of sexual paraphilias through moralism, together with the rise of rampant violence and sadism, mysticism and narcissism were the result of straying from nature's wisdom in the hubristic attempt to better the 'impossible' human. More specifically, the book shows that we are right now living in the ending phase of antithesis, indicated by rising youth fascism and an outright denial of complexity at the highest level of our governments.In the last and perhaps most important chapter, the author shows the baseline of the synthesis that he projects to come about during the Aquarius Age, with a reintegration of the wisdom of native peoples and the recognition of what he calls 'The Twelve Branches of the Tree of Knowledge,' true Religio, permissive education and integrative, sustainable and humane social policies that are based on a new intelligent understanding of the 'possible' human.

About the Author

Parallel to an international law career in Germany, Switzerland and the United States, Dr. Peter Fritz Walter (Pierre) focused upon fine art, cookery, astrology, musical performance, social sciences and humanities.

He started writing essays as an adolescent and received a high school award for creative writing and editorial work for the school magazine.

After finalizing his law diplomas, he graduated with an LL.M. in European Integration at Saarland University, Germany, and with a Doctor of Law title from University of Geneva, Switzerland, in 1987.

He then took courses in psychology at the University of Geneva and interviewed a number of psychotherapists in Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland. His interest was intensified through a hypnotherapy with an Ericksonian American hypnotherapist in Lausanne. This led him to the recovery and healing of his inner child.

In 1986, he met the late French psychotherapist and child psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto (1908-1988) in Paris and interviewed her. A long correspondence followed up to their encounter which was considered by the curators of the Dolto Trust interesting enough to be published in a book alongside all of Dolto's other letter exchanges by Gallimard Publishers in Paris, in 2005.

After a second career as a corporate trainer and personal coach, Pierre retired as a full-time writer, philosopher and consultant.

His nonfiction books emphasize a systemic, holistic, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective, while his fiction works and short stories focus upon education, philosophy, perennial wisdom, and the poetic formulation of an integrative worldview.

Pierre is a German-French bilingual native speaker and writes English as his 4th language after German, Latin and French. He also reads source literature for his research works in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. In addition, Pierre has notions of Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Japanese.

All of Pierre's books are hand-crafted and self-published, designed by the author. Pierre publishes via his Delaware company, Sirius-C Media Galaxy LLC, and under the imprints of IPUBLICA and SCM (Sirius-C Media).
