"an intellectually courageous attempt ... this book is highly original and thought-provoking... highly recommended to those who struggle to understand their way of understanding." in: Systems Research and Behavioral Science 22 (2005) "In this challenging, integrative work, Steven Rosen explores the roots of the crisis of postmodernity: the widespread `fragmentation of human culture' ... By juxtaposing and integrating images and ideas that reorient dualistic assumptions, Rosen creates a sense of overlapping transparencies that invite the reader to see through many perspectives simultaneously ... he points us toward a new science of experiential reflection that questions the limits of the conceptual so that we may "think our own thinking" in: The Journal of Mind and Behavior, Vol. 25, No. 4, Autumn 2004 "This groundbreaking book brings to fruition Rosen's reflexive theory of time and space. With recent physics breaking linear time symmetry, this unique integration of physics and philosophy is indeed timely." - Eugene T. Gendlin, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy and Psychology, University of Chicago "Rosen's ideas are precisely stated, and he draws upon an impressive range of sources, both ancient and modern. The author shows the inadequacy of conventional thinking about space and time and argues persuasively for an intriguing new alternative. This important book may have radical implications for the conduct of science in the 21st century." - Brian Josephson, Professor of Physics, Cambridge University, and Nobel Laureate
