A New Mythic Perspective For Our Time

 

 

 

The modern world is passing through a period of critical change on many levels: cultural, political, ecological and spiritual. We are witnessing the decline and dissolution of the old order, the tumult and uncertainty of a new birth. Against this background, Keiron Le Grice argues that the developing insights of a new cosmology could provide a coherent framework of meaning to lead us beyond the growing fragmentation of culture, belief and personal identity.

 

In a compelling synthesis of the ideas of seminal thinkers from depth psychology and new paradigm science, Le Grice positions the new discipline of archetypal astrology at the centre of an emerging world view that reunifies psyche and cosmos, spirituality and science, mythology and metaphysics, enabling us to see mythic gods, heroes and themes in a fresh light.

 

Heralding a “rediscovery of the gods” and the passage into a new spiritual era, The Archetypal Cosmos presents a new understanding of the role of myth and archetypal principles in our lives, one that could give a cosmic perspective and deeper meaning to our personal experience.

 

 

 

 

The Archetypal Cosmos is a brilliant, meticulous synthesis of revolutionary advances on three fronts: depth psychology, new paradigm science, and archetypal astrology. Le Grice has a gift, perhaps even a genius, for extremely clear assessments, expositions, and formulations of complex ideas — all grounded in a deeper vision which makes this clarity possible”—RICHARD TARNAS, author of The Passion of the Western Mind and Cosmos and Psyche

 

“The radically expanded cosmological perspective that Keiron Le Grice has set out in The Archetypal Cosmos reflects a paradigm shift of enormous relevance for the future of psychology and psychotherapy. Le Grice has performed an invaluable service in carefully thinking through and articulating a spiritually informed view of the cosmos that integrates these developments with the new paradigm sciences . . . a lucid and groundbreaking synthesis.” STANISLAV GROF, author of Psychology of the Future and When the Impossible Happens

 

“Le Grice’s book is a fantastic achievement, combining complex theories from leading figures in psychology and the physical sciences — especially Carl Jung, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and David Bohm.  Le Grice’s original synthesis demonstrates how profoundly these figures belong together in a new unified world view. With both the excellence of the writing and the high-powered nature of the ideas, The Archetypal Cosmos is destined to be an essential element in the contemporary planetary canon.”—BRIAN SWIMME, author of The Hidden Heart of the Cosmos and coauthor of The Universe Story

 

“This is a book of considerable importance and relevance to the times we live in; for what it does is to bridge and overcome the longstanding historic gap between inner and outer worlds, thereby demolishing the West’s Cartesian dualism in all its aspects. No mean thing, to put it lightly, and in doing this it heralds a new age which its author believes has already begun, and for which he provides us with evidence ranging across a spectrum of modern and contemporary insights furnished by Einstein, Jung, Teilhard de Chardin, David Bohm, Fritjof Capra, Rupert Sheldrake and others; thereby setting up an overall view of what, from his standpoint, has actually been building up over the years. The results are impressive and convince, above all in the clarifying and integrating way in which they are put forward and interpreted.

[The] line of argument . . . [is] pursued with a directness and ongoing conviction that carry the reader along . . . . Le Grice’s publication is a mammoth attempt to integrate inner with outer on a seemingly limitless scale. The Archetypal Cosmos has an immense amount to offer, having given this reviewer much food for thought.” JACK HERBERT, Temenos Academy Review, UK

 

“The book takes the reader on an epic journey through many contrasting landscapes of thought. . . . A brilliant synthesis of new ideas.” DAVID LORIMER, Scientific and Medical Network, UK

 

“Humanity has much to gain from this synthesis between planetary cycles and the dynamics and patterns of human experience.” RUTH PARNELL, Nexus Review
