Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View
Penguin, 2006 - 569 pàgines
Richard TarnasÂ's The Passion of the Western MindÂ—acclaimed by leading voices in philosophy, religion, psychology, and historyÂ—sets the stage for this major work, thirty years in the making, that dramatically reframes our understanding of the universe in the light of extraordinary new evidence.
Cosmos and Psyche is the first book by a widely respected scholar to demonstrate the existence of a consistent correspondence between planetary movements and the unfolding drama of human history. A vast and impressive body of evidence illuminates patterns of meaning and precise correlations between the universe and the world of human endeavor. With meticulous detail, Richard Tarnas takes us on a journey that begins with the ancient Greeks and culminates in our own era and its transformative potential, putting into perspective these chaotic, tumultuous timesÂ—from the sixties to September 11, 2001Â—and pointing the way towards the future.
In terms of planetary cycles, our present moment in history is most comparable to the period five hundred years agoÂ—that era of Â“extraordinary turbulence and creativity,Â” the High Renaissance. Not since Copernicus conceived the heliocentric theory has the human community faced such a profound realignment of the way we think. Readers of every persuasion will be impressed by the vast canvas here, the wealth of research and analysis, and the profound conclusions that may be drawnÂ—conclusions that reunite religion and science, and restore a transcendent dimension to the universe.
