The Philosophers' Secret Fire : A History of the Imagination Paperback
Mr. Harpur links together fields as far apart as Greek philosophy and depth psychology, Renaissance magic and tribal ritual, Romantic poetry and the ecstasy of the shaman, to trace how societies over time have used myths to make sense of the world.
Harpur leads us through history's secret chambers with such grace of language and insight that we forget the hour....
I would make Harpur's book required reading for every student of philosophy, depth psychology, and history. --Dianne Skafte
