Praise for the original edition:
“Brian Swimme, a superb scientist, here reveals to us the wonder and beauty and enchanting qualities of the world about us. Only such a universe, revealed in such lyric language, can save our souls, for this is the primary revelation of the Divine itself.”—Thomas Berry, author, The Dream of the Earth
“Without burdening the reader with technical terms, Brian Swimme conveys the basic ideas of modern cosmology and, at the same time, a sense of belonging to the cosmos. A marvelous book!”—Fritjof Capra, author, The Tao of Physics
First published in 1996, Hidden Heart of the Cosmos sought to answer the question: What does it mean to be human, to live on planet Earth, in the universe as it is now understood? In this new and updated edition, bestselling author and evolutionary cosmologist Brian Thomas Swimme takes us on a journey through the cosmos in search of the “new story” that is developing in response to this age-old question.
Brian Thomas Swimme is professor of cosmology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is author or co-author of The Universe is a Green Dragon, The Universe Story, with Thomas Berry, and Journey of the Universe, book and film (Yale), with Mary Evelyn Tucker (www.journeyoftheuniverse.org).
