New special issue of Integral Review (June 2013, 9:2)

At this link. On Rifkin, see Molz and Edwards Intro:

"Ateljevic lays out a program for an integrated 'transmodern' approach to a scholarship of hope and caring. This perspective comes from Ateljevic's notion of 'the synchronized phenomenon of emerging higher collective consciousness' as expressed in the...'relational global consciousness of biosphere politics' of Rifkin.... She seeks to provide a coordinating language that connects these signs of an emerging paradigm shift that might well constitute ‘the new renaissance' of human history" (8).

Also see Ateljevic's article, where Rifkin is featured prominently. See this new thread for discussion of the new issue.
