Chaos pioneer Ralph Abraham traces the history of consciousness through a rediscovery of three driving forces, chaos, gaia, and eros--the mind, body, and spirit of evolution. With startling originality and clarity of vision, Abraham employs photographs, timelines, charts, and an engaging format to sweep the reader along on a wild ride through the whole of history--blowing the doors off existing modes of thought.

User Review  - Meg - Goodreads

I read this for a course on Systems Theory in high school. A great framework for looking at the themes of civilization in a new fashion. It's like trying on new underpants, only for your brain. Read full review
