The Passion of the Western Mind: Understanding the Ideas that Have Shaped Our World View [ebook] by Richard Tarnas (epub/mobi)

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 WESTERN MIND is truly a complete liberal education in a single volume.
“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. The writing is elegant and carries the reader with the momentum of a novel… It is really a noble performance.”
–Joseph Campbell, author of The Hero with a Thousand Faces
“It is a superb, enthralling book–a masterpiece: as gripping as a detective story; as moving as a poem. Tarnas writes lucidly, brilliantly, passionately, unfolding the great drama of the evolution of the Western mind act by act, scene by scene in precise and scholarly detail.”
–Anne Baring, Resurgence
“One of the most illuminating, satisfying, beautifully written, lucidly argued–and important–books I have ever read.”  –Keith Thompson, Utne Reader
“This brilliant classic is essential reading.”
–David Lorimer The Scientific and Medical Network Review
