Other Ways of Knowing by John Broomfield

Book Description

As overpopulation and overconsumption have jeopardised our survival and the great promises of technology have resulted in environmental disaster, Other Ways Of Knowing shows us the wisdom of other cultures who may hold the knowledge necessary to arrest our headlong race toward destruction. The author says that this situation of 'our civilisation in crisis', results from the serious error that the Western world makes in equating one way of knowing with all ways of knowing. By doing this, he feels that a thin slice of reality is mistaken for the whole. In his book, John Broomfield argues that the necessary wisdom to chart a new course is available to us from many sources: the sacred traditions of our ancestors; the spiritual traditions of other cultures; spirit in nature; feminine ways of being; contemporary movements for personal, social, and ecological transformation; and the very source of our current crisis, science itself.
