Product Description

The public rings with complaints that our culture is breaking down, that the breakdown of Western Civilization is at hand. Yet in order to understand the complex forces behind both hold up and destroy Western Civilizations, one must learn the historical undergirdings of such ideas. Discover the intellectual and cultural dynamics of Greece, Rome, Judaism and the rise of Christianity and the impact they had upon popular opinion. Tracing the intersection of philosophy, religion and science, the modern Western mind will be enlightened as it reads of the backstory of our complex modern society. 544 indexed pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

"[This] magnificent critical survey, with its inherent respect for both the 'Westt's mainstream high culture' and the 'radically changing world' of the 1990s, offers a new breakthrough for lay and scholarly readers alike....Allows readers to grasp the big picture of Western culture for the first time."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Here are the great minds of Western civilization and their pivotal ideas, from Plato to Hegel, from Augustine to Nietzsche, from Copernicus to Freud. Richard Tarnas performs the near-miracle of describing profound philosophical concepts simply but without simplifying them. Ten years in the making and already hailed as a classic, THE PASSION OF THE WESERN MIND is truly a complete liberal education in a single volume.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

"No other such overview provides, in equal compass, as clear and cogent a survey. Its scholarship is impeccable....For its length it is the best intellectual history of the West I have ever seen." --Huston Smith, Graduate Theological Union at Berkeley
"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."--Joseph Campbell
