This book presents a bold, far-sighted, and intellectually stimulating philosophy. His new theory of mind moves beyond the mechanistic world view of the past into one which is holistic, evolutionary, and co-creative. Skolimowski believes that the rediscovery of the spiritual "is the hallmark of our time as we approach the twenty-first century." Once we tap this resonant resource, we can think reverentially, appreciate the unity of all things, and develop a compassionate consciousness. The Participatory Mind is eloquent testimony to the powerful impact of spirituality on the academic community.
