Three visions regularly appear in George Grow’s works:
The creation of an agenda for the collective or integral intelligence of virtue.
But virtue in this case is not a moral category, but rather a functional one. Virtue is defined as the sense of intentionally or even unintentionally serving to discover the meaning of life.
Renewal of the function of democracy.
With the dethronement of the aristocracy and the proclamation of the republic more than a hundred years ago, no true democracy came into being. George Grow and the Books of Life provide us with democratic education, entertainment, and education. They provide us with tools with which a legal turn and reform to true democracy is possible.
Renewal of the function of religion.
According to Grow's axiomatic approach, the greatest peril of modern society is its assumption that humankind has been able to escape the Cosmic Order or that such an Order has never existed. Although Modernism has freed us from the bonds of outdated, despotic religious and political dominance, we have been tossed into a void. It is to show that man has a metaphysical dimension of humanity and is more than just an individual aspect, in that we all share a fate, a meaning, a direction of movement, a history and the same world – together but all in various ways.
