"A remarkable panorama of the human understanding of the natural and metaphysical world from the first civilizations to the present day."
John Baines, University of Oxford, UK
"Breathtaking in its daring, the book explores the two ways which humanity has used to seek meaning and make sense of the world, namely religion and science. The result is a highly erudite summary of belief systems from early Sumerian to the monotheistic religions; and an eminently accessible history of science, particularly of the last 500 years."
Sir Gustav Nossal, University of Sydney, Australia
"It is definitely useful for teachers and students wanting to make a quick introductory acquaintance with decisive developments in modern science and a brief overview of mythopoetic and religious systems of thought in the West."
