Description

A cultural philosopher and an astrophysicist attempt to decipher how we fit into the universe, and the impact our placement has on us.

After a four-century rupture between science and the questions of value and meaning, this groundbreaking book presents an explosive and potentially life-altering idea: if the world could agree on a shared creation story based on modern cosmology and biologya story that has just become availableit would redefine our relationship with Planet Earth and benefit all of humanity, now and into the distant future.

Written in eloquent, accessible prose and illustrated in magnificent color throughout, including images from innovative simulations of the evolving universe, this book brings the new scientific picture of the universe to life. It interprets what our human place in the cosmos may mean for us and our descendants. It offers unique insights into the potential use of this newfound knowledge to find solutions to seemingly intractable global problems such as climate change and unsustainable growth. And it explains why we need to ';think cosmically, act globally' if were going to have a long-term, prosperous future on Earth.

';Should be read by anyone, not just scientists, who worry about the human condition.'Deepak Chopra,The Huffington Post

';A prophetic book. Its message ranks right up there with those of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Joel. Like the prophets, it is at times poetic, demanding, grounded, soaring, empowering, and always awe-inspiring.'Matthew Fox,Tikkun

';The ideas and images are fascinating and certainly contribute to a sense of the profound stakes involved in what we're doing to the planet and ourselves.'William Kowinski,North Coast Journal
