5.0 out of 5 stars Full of ideas, and well worth a reread, 17 May 2003
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Philosophers' Secret Fire: A History of the Human Imagination (Paperback)
The ingenious idea at the heart of this book is that the more we seek to deny that we live in a universe suffused with weirdness and the imaginal, the more we bind ourselves to that weirdness. Harpur argues that each advance in science is often a mirrored-but-identical version of something imaginal we have tried to deny, and that the further we delve into the mysteries of the universe, the more we come across an almost magical reality. We deny the faerie or daimonic realm only to find that the quantum world obeys the same rules and fulfils the same function. Full of ideas, and well worth a reread.
