    1. I really can’t remember how this book ended up on my to-read shelf. As I recently wanted to read a book on the history of thought like that of Bertrand Russell’s History of Western Philosophy, I picked this up since it is relatively recent and thus it would give an idea of some modern schools of thought like those of Postmodernism and Deconstructionism, something Russell’s book lacked since it is written in 1945. As a history of western thought, this book is excellent. I would highly recom [...]

    2. For a book that describes itself as one the encompasses the Ideas that Have Shaped Our World View, there was very little mention of the roles women played. I took a class with the author, and when we brought up the invisibility of women in history, and in his book, he became defensive and told us we had an "allergy" towards himill not sure what that means. As he explained throughout the three day course, he understands what it means to be a woman because he's experienced childbirth during LSD an [...]

    3. This is a very important, well written and dense treatise about the history of ideas in Western Civilization. The author manages to condense, in a single book, all the major stepping stones of the intellectual history of the West, and he manages to achieve this result without seriously compromising on depth and accuracy. The great drama of the evolution of the Western Mind is described passionately and in a gripping and enjoyable book, where the critical concepts and world-views, as expressed by [...]

    4. Though this book was written in 1991, it still serves as an excellent analysis of the paralysis of the modern world. Richard Tarnas is primarily focused on philosophers and philosophy, but a glance at the present political situation reveals how strong the connection is between the loss of a common paradigm (or even two or three) and the confusion that confounds the global society.Tarnas, though, grounds that grasp of the present in the intellectual traditions that shaped the modern world, and be [...]

    5. Joseph Campbell called this book "the most lucid and concise presentation I have read of the grand linesof Western thought." High praise from someone who would know! Tarnas' greatest achievement, to my mind, is the lucidity of his prose which makes this an enormously readable survey of the Western Mind from the Greeks to the Post Moderns.Tarnas' objective for creating this opus is similar to what Campbell wished to do: that is, to create the possibility for an integration of all cultures and all [...]

    6. Nine-tenths or so of this book is a very conventional, albeit prolix, survey of the history of philosophical thinking in the West from the pre-Socratics to the present. As a brief introduction to the history of ideas it is to be recommended. Even the wordy repetitiveness of Tarnas' exposition may function as an aid to retention and understanding for beginners.Having devoted decades to such studies myself, I found most of the book to be a rehash of familiar ideas and would never have gone through [...]

    7. التحديث الأول:بالأمس بدأت به، لا ثقة بالكتاب بل ثقة باسم الدار الناشرة له، وأجده كتاب جيد جداً ولا زلت في البداية، عرّفني على إجابات كانت تشكل علي مثل علاقة تعدد الآلهة عند الإغريق بالجواهر المفردة لدى أفلاطون.لكن بالطبع لا نسّلم لمؤرخ غربي يتحدث عن الغرب ولابد من تذكر قوة ت [...]

    8. Tarnas aptly delineates the trajectory of Western philosophy from the pre-Socratic era to postmodernism: a long laborious journey from Homer, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle (Greek era); to Jesus Christ, Paul, Augustine and Aquinas (Christian Medieval era); and then Copernicus, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Goethe, Hegel, Freud and Jung (Modern era); and finally a quick turn at Nietzsche and (Postmodernism). Of course, these figures are central; the narrative encompasses more. Yet it neglects othe [...]

    9. The subject matter is fascinating. I can't say the same thing for Tarnas' writing style, however. Tarnas seems to think his book is a game of Scrabble. But you don't win points with readers when you employ unnecessary extended metaphors every other page, write the same thing over and over in different ways, and use complicated words when simpler ones would suffice. With a good editor, this book could be condensed into a more readable form- one that allows the average person to engage the materia [...]

    11. This was a very interesting book about cultural philosophy. 95% of the book is a survey from Plato to Postmodernism. In the last 5% of the book, Tarnas uses the entire trajectory of western thought to present his reflections regarding the direction in which culture may be headed. Although my comprehension of what he describes remains incomplete, I'll attempt a brief review of only the epilogue:Tarnas shows that the Scientific Enlightenment created a paradigm shift in the collective human psyche, [...]

    12. An impressive synthesis of a lot of material; excellent review of the "Greek mind" and how it persists; of the "Judeao-Christian mind" and how it persists. Perhaps most provocative is the suggestion that we are somehow mystically evolving into a new consciousness (Gaia), and that the roots of this come out of Freud, Jung, Groff, and the psychedelics, with an accompanying shift from a masculine dominated intellectual culture to a feminine one. One HUGE omission: what about the non-Western mind? T [...]

    13. I am glad I read this book, but, woo, am I glad I'm done with it. It took me 6 weeks to read and was very intellectually challenging. It is a very well-done history of Western thought, just at the right level for me. It gets a little depressing when he gets to the post-modern era. Bottom line: after centuries of the best minds trying to understand ourselves and the world we live in, we can know nothing with certainty. Then the epilogue gets kind of woo-woo, with the hypothesis that our collectiv [...]

    14. This is the best book to read in order to understand Western thought and its development. If you want to close the gap between how you and westerners tend to view much of the world around us, then this book helps you get on that track. It defines the line of thought through which they have progressed to where they are today. Very surprising stories e.g. "Human Evolution" was actually conceived to great detail by the Pre-Socratic Greeks?This book is currently leading me on a philosophical rampage [...]

    15. Richard Tarnas' book, The Passion of the Western Mind, descriptively and eloquently chronicles the evolution of human discoveries and consciousness (from the time of ancient Greece to modern times). I'm a homeschooling mom and am currently using Tarnas' book to prepare myself for history lessons with my child. It provides a wonderful context by describing the leading ideas of an historical time period. In that way I can help my daughter understand the culture and motivations of a people so that [...]

    16. Tarnas offers an excellent introduction to the history of Western thought. Beginning with the ancient Greeks and Hebrews, he traces the development of Western thought in science, religion, philosophy and other fields through to the modern day, concluding with his own unique contributions to this Great Conversation. If you are looking for a book to get your started on the road toward a liberal education, this is the place to begin; the bibliography alone makes this book worth buying.

    17. A good history of Philosophy. It has the problem, however, that the author looks at his subject with such a passion, that he seems to agree with most theories, including those that are diametrically opposite! On the other hand, his treatment of Christian philosophy is a little (just a little) disparaging.

    18. Tarnas begins with Plato, working backward and forward from him. Plato's Forms, in particular, set the stage for the rest of the book, in my view. According to Plato, there are transcendent Forms for 'Man', 'Tree', 'Woman', for example, that the soul was exposed to before birth and remembers later in life. These Forms are timeless, trancendent and most, Beautiful. Aristotle, the tenth in line from Pythagoras, quickly relegates Plato's Forms to the particular, noting their birth, maturation and d [...]

    19. The author had the ability to write the story of the development of understanding our place in the universe and how we fit in it as if he were writing a novel. The narrative flows that well. He's a very good writer. The author steps the reader through the development of how we think about knowledge. The heavens above, the home of the Gods, are first thought of as perfect: universal, necessary, and certain. Overtime, through rational thought and coupling with experience we start to understand the [...]

    20. Tarnas begins with an intention to deal with a variety of material so large that its capacity to fit into one (fairly short) volume initially seems questionable. However, Tarnas does an admirable job in presenting a cohesive narrative, encompassing a wide range of sources and identifying the continuous, backwards-looking strand that connects the doctrines and theories. Unlike other attempts of the same nature, the presentation of the various viewpoints is done in a consistently fair and convinci [...]

    21. This was a pretty good book. It is a nice overview of western philosophy. I like the extensive chronology of western philosophy in the back of the book. I do take issue with his conclusion that the silencing of women's voices is not just "social restriction" but instead "archetypal" and a necessary step in the formation of the human psyche. I disagree and know that women have made contributions that we are unaware of because our society has decided that it is ok that they have no voice. I did no [...]

    22. Overall I thought this book provided a great introduction to the major intellectual ideas as they moulded throughout time. However, and perhaps this is because I am a Lacanian, I thought the epilogue of this book was AWFUL. I'm really glad that Tarnas was able to keep it separate from the rest of his book (except perhaps when he starts praising Jung and only briefly mentioning Freud). As Lacan said, "there is no sexual relationship," so the fact that Tarnas provides this as the basis for his ide [...]

    23. This is an amazing overview of the entire history and legacy of Western thought from the Ancient Greeks to contemporary times, covering along the way the Medieval and Renaissance mind as well as the development of the modern worldview. Though it necessarily glosses over more detailed explorations of specific philosophers and movements, the author includes the ideas that are most fundamentally important to how we think today and puts them in a historical context. I now feel like I have a much bet [...]

    24. Here's some pretty enjoyable, heady stuff, canvassing the philosophical minds of the ancient Greeks and early Christians through the middle ages, the enlightenment, and the sparks of the "modern" world. However, it does seem to thin out somewhat in the latter stages of the book relative to the earlier pages. Interestingly, I actually took 1.5 years to fumble my way through it - putting it down for months at a time in between philosophical eras. That unintentional reading method didn't take away [...]

    25. This book gave me a great overview of the history of our thinking, and tremendous respect for the long traditions we benefit from. It links the different eras in a brilliant way and gives just the right level of detail to really understand each era, including the Greeks, the Christians, the Enlightenment and modern thinking.Only the last chapter on Postmodernism doesn't quite make it - but given that this book was published before Ken Wilber's greatest works (in 1991) so had not benefited from I [...]

R. Tolkien)Reading Chapter 5:

    27. The best single volume work on the development of Western thought. A fascinating look on how we have developed our world view starting from the ancient Greeks and going to the 20th century. A must read.

    28. I read his book many years ago. I found it nothing less than fascinating, one of the very best non-fiction books I have ever read. I highly recommend it to all who are interested in ideas and their evolution in Western civilization

    29. كتاب رائع،،عرض العقل الغربي بشكل مركز ،نقدي ، وموجز يعطيك الكثير من التفسيرات للظواهر الحديثة اليومية، و الاتجاهات العلمية، بل و يعطيك نوعاً من الضوء لما سيحصل في المستقبل
