Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS MIT, relativizes the authority of science with a relentless critique of its adequacy for the whole of human experience of Reality, while meanwhile participating in what was arguably the most signal instance of scientific mysticism ever: the psychedelic movement. We wish for a foundation in authoritative truth, while being immersed in an endlessly superficial and incessantly changing culture. Huston Smith speaks from his studies of the revealed truths of the ages, and calmly asserts the unchanging structures of those truths, while entering into conversation after conversation with the people of this time, as a spiritual friend, elder, and hermetic guide.
