"Other Ways Of Knowing" opens with the words: "Take heart! Humanity is wise and, in its rich diversity, possessed of vast reservoirs of creativity, inspiration and spiritual energy with which to meet the challenges of the New Millennium. Be of good cheer, for this is an intentional, life-enhancing universe with love as its vital force.

"You and I have great work to do. In the 20th century humanity has been hell-bent on acquiring new knowledge. In the 21st century we must have the wisdom to save ourselves from the effects of this knowledge.

"At a time when many are despairing at the fate of the earth, it is my purpose with this book to bring you the good news that the necessary wisdom is readily available from many sources:

"From the sacred traditions of our ancestors. From the spiritual lives of our own and other cultures. From spirit in nature. From the deep knowledge of healthy processes embedded in our own bodies. From feminine ways of being. From contemporary movements for personal, social and ecological transformation. Unexpectedly, even from the apparent source of our current crisis, science itself."

Responding to the hunger for serious examination of the great issues of the age, John Broomfield provides an understanding of why our civilization is at an impasse.

"In the modern West we have made the serious error of equating our way of knowing, which we variously call science and history, with all of knowledge. Put another way, we have taken a thin slice of reality and mistaken it for the whole. Happily, there are other ways of knowing."
