Review: Passion of the Western Mind

Passion of the Western Mind
Passion of the Western Mind by Richard Tarnas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tarnas offers an excellent introduction to the history of Western thought. Beginning with the ancient Greeks and Hebrews, he traces the development of Western thought in science, religion, philosophy and other fields through to the modern day, concluding with his own unique contributions to this Great Conversation. If you are looking for a book to get your started on the road toward a liberal education, this is the place to begin; the bibliography alone makes this book worth buying.
