From a philosopher whose magisterial history of Western thought was praised by Joseph Campbell and Huston Smith comes a brilliant new book that traces the connection between cosmic cycles and archetypal patterns of human experience. Drawing on years of research and on thinkers from Plato to Jung, Richard Tarnas explores the planetary correlations of epochal events like the French Revolution, the two world wars, and September 11. Whether read as astrology updated for the quantum age or as a contemporary classic of spirituality, Cosmos and Psyche is a work of immense sophistication, deep learning, and lasting importance.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Cosmos and Psyche

"Breathtaking in the scope and scale of its vision, this extraordinary book shatters our cosmological assumptions as it awakens us to a living universe and its creative intelligence. Tarnas succeeds masterfully in bringing his encyclopedic knowledge forged in writing the critically acclaimed Passion of the Western Mind to the task of discerning the archetypal pulse of history. Spellbinding, eloquent, compelling, Cosmos and Psyche will be a marker for an entire generation." –Christopher Bache, Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Youngstown State University, author of Dark Night, Early Dawn.

"It is hard to think of many books written in the past century that will still be read two hundred years from now. Cosmos and Psyche will top that short list. It is majestic, sweeping, and profound. This will be a book for the ages. It will stand over time with the seminal expressions of the human spirit." --William Van Dusen Wishard, Principal, World Trends Research, author of Between Two Ages: The 21st Century and the Crisis of Meaning

Praise for The Passion of the Western Mind

"The most lucid and concise presentation I have read, of the grand lines of what every student should know about the history of Western thought. The writing is elegant and carries the reader with the momentum of a novel.... A noble performance." –Joseph Campbell, author of The Hero with a Thousand Faces

"The best intellectual history of the West in one volume I have ever seen." –Huston Smith, author of The World’s Religions

"One of the most illuminating, satisfying, beautifully written, lucidly argued—and important—books I have ever read." –Keith Thompson, Utne Reader

About the Author:
