Cosmos and psyche : intimations of a new world view

by Richard Tarnas

Hardcover, 2006




New York, N.Y. : Viking, 2006.


"Based on thirty years of research, Cosmos and Psyche is the first book by a widely respected scholar to demonstrate the existence of a direct connection between planetary movements and the archetypal patterns of human experience. The book examines such famous epochs of cultural rebellion as the 1960s and the French Revolution, as well as periods of historical crisis such as the world wars and September 11 and its aftermath. Tarnas also explores comparable patterns and planetary correlations in the lives of many individuals, from Darwin, Nietzsche, and Freud to Martin Luther King, Betty Friedan, and John Lennon."--BOOK JACKET.

Rather naive connection of planetary alignment with revolutionary thinking in Western Civilization. Lots of big words and obscure ideas.
