The Night Sky: Soul and Cosmos PDF

Richard Grossinger

Ever since Homo sapiens first looked up at the stars, we as a species have been looking for meaning in the mysteries of the night sky. Over the millennia, as our knowledge, science, and technology developed, the stories we told ourselves about the universe and our place in it developed as well. In The Night Sky, Richard Grossinger traces those developments, covering multiple aspects of humanitys complex relationship to the cosmos. Covering not only astronomy but also cosmology, cosmogony, astrology, and science fiction, he offers us a revelatory look at the firmament through his own telescope, fitted with an anthropological lens.

Throughout his explorations, Grossinger continually reflects on the deeper meaning of our changing concepts about the universe and creation, offering insight into how each new discovery causes us to redefine the values, moralities, and aesthetics by which we live. He also calls into question the self-aggrandizing notion that humanity can and will conquer all, and injects our strident confidence in science with a healthy dose of humility and wonder. Filled with poetic observation and profound questions, The Night Sky is a brilliant reflection of humanitys relationship with the cosmos--a relationship fed by longing, doubt, and awe.

30.09.2014 · "Richard Grossinger's new book The Night Sky should be heralded as the publishing event of the decade for its power to change your relationship to the universe. To understand its vision, one needs to open up the soul in ways that have been forgotten, ignored, and even explicitly oppressed by Western civilization for over four hundred years now.
