33 of 35 people found the following review helpful By Angus Jenkinson VINE VOICE on 15 Aug. 2003
Format: Paperback
The wrtiers are scientists who have spent two decades researching the nature and processes of knowledge. Their findings contrast sharply with many scientific reports: here they recover the wholness of knowledge and the connections between the knower and the known. They show the deep potential for relationship that is built into the knowledge process and affirm what they can only describe as love as the root of nature's capacity for knowing. This is demonstrated not only with respect to human cognition, but also with reference to the animal kingdom.
This is therefore a challenging and profoundly researched essay, yet it is also highly readable for the interested lay person.
Prof. Angus Jenkinson

Format: Paperback
Surely the book is asking for extreme levels of attention and a slow intake of the subject that is presented to you since it's very likely that you are not used to the perspective the authors apply here. However, the journey is well worth is. It will enable you to understand society less from a ego perspective and more in a systemic sense. The foundations laid out here can be applied to so many common problems in life and
form an extremely important aspect in understanding human mankind itself in a completely different and profound way.

Format: Paperback
Tho the content the title looks fine to me, as it is to explore our roots of understanding ,

I find it lack of clarity as a research book,

Such as the language they use is random, and not academic, as not help me understand their idea.
