About the Author
Jean Gebser (1905-1973) was lecturer at the Institute of Applied Psychology in Zürich and honorary Professor of Comparative Studies of Civilization at the University of Salzburg. For his many publications, he received several prizes, including a share of the German Schiller prize, the literary award of the Esslingen Artist's Guild, the Koggen prize of the City of Minden, and the literary award of the City of Berne.
"Jean Gebser's magnum opus is at long last available in a fine English rendering ... I expect no less an interest in the English translation, and hope that Gebser's work will now begin to receive the worldwide recognition it deserves."--Emergent Paradigm Bulletin
"(The book) impressed me as a very important, indeed in some respects pioneering, piece of work. It treads new paths, opens new vistas, and in so doing it is vastly, solidly, and subtly documented by a wealth of anthropological, mythological, linguistic, artistic, philosophical, and scientific material which is fruitfully brought into play and shown in its multifold and striking interrelationships. The book is brilliantly written and introduces many valuable new terms and distinctions. (It shows) that scholarly precision and faithfulness to given data are fully compatible with a broad, imaginative, and spiritual outlook; and (it exposes) the utter sterility of the prevailing positivistic, mechanistic, and wrongfully scientistic methods."--Erich Kahler, author of Man the Measure, The Tower and the Abyss, The Orbit of Thomas Mann
"The gigantic attempt of one of the most creative and stimulating thinkers of modern Europe to integrate the most advanced knowledge of our time with the spiritual sources of the past."--Lama Anagarika Govinda
