Hear it here!

Best-selling author Richard Tarnas, whose 1991 book The Passion of the Western Mind has been required reading on many campuses, has just finished his new and exciting Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View.

[from the Cosmos and Psyche website:]
"With The Passion of the Western Mind, Richard Tarnas gave the world what many scholars, from Joseph Campbell to Huston Smith, regarded as one of the finest histories of the Western mind and spirit ever written. Now, Cosmos and Psyche challenges the basic assumptions of the modern world view with an extraordinary body of evidence that points towards a profound new understanding of the human role in the cosmos.

Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View shines new light on the unfolding drama of human history and our own critical age. It also suggests a new possibility for reuniting religion and science, soul and intellect, ancient wisdom and modern reason in the quest to understand the past and create the future."
--Published by Viking Press (Penguin Group) 2006, $29.95
