Richard Tarnas - April 2007
     
 
Salon and Lecture Series
Richard Tarnas, author of the internationally acclaimed The Passion of the Western Mind: Understanding the Ideas that Have Shaped Our World View (1991), and recently of Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View (2006), will be in Boise in April. His work is ground-breaking both in his analysis of Western history and in his views of an emerging world view. His first book, praised by such diverse figures as Joseph Campbell, the philosopher Robert A. McDermott, the psychologist Stanislav Grof, and professor of religious studies Huston Smith, is recognized as a fresh and profound understanding of the development of Western thought. His controversial new book challenges our understanding of this history at its very foundations, suggesting a synchronistic connection between the structure of the world and the psyche that pervades it.

Richard Tarnas, Ph.D., is professor of philosophy and psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, and founding director of its graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness. He is also adjunct faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, where he teaches in the clinical and depth psychology programs. Formerly director of programs and education at Esalen Institute, he is the author of The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western world view that has become both a bestseller and a widely used text in universities.
