Raleigh, NC, U.S.A.: Pentland Press, Incorporated, 1998. Raleigh: Pentland, 1998. First edition. Cloth binding, 303 pp. "I read this book with great delight, admiration, and a deep sympathy. It gives a true and up-to-date scientific history of the world from elementary particles to human consciousness and culture. It brings into common perspective such diverse areas as self-organizing systems, cell biology, primate studies, brain research, comparative history of religions, current critical psychoanalytic theory and philosophy—more precisely epistemology. This may seem like too much for one book, but the author succeeds brilliantly to convince us that—while looking at the world—we can indeed understand this great story.... Thus the book may be seen as an elaboration of Einstein's famous words: 'The true miracle of this world is that we can understand it,' and Eberhardt even shows us why we can do so." -- Gustav Obermair . New in new dustjacket, protected with a mylar cover.. First Edition. Hard Cover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
