A Spiritual Journey: Reflections on the Philosophy of Religion, A Transcendental Journey, and Cosmic Consciousness Redux
FROM THE PREFACE: This book is really three books in one. “Part I: Reflections on the Philosophy of Religion” is comprised of serious and light-hearted reflections and accounts of various thoughts I have had over a lifetime of study and reflection on the philosophy of religion. “Part II: A Transcendental Journey” discusses New England Transcendentalism beginning with Emerson and going on to the related writings of other authors on Transcendentalism. “Part III: Cosmic Consciousness Redux” reflects my evolving thinking and commentary on Dr. Richard Maurice Bucke’s book, “Cosmic Consciousness,” which I first explored in an earlier book, “Who Knows?” RAYMOND M. SMULLYAN has had a remarkably diverse sequence of careers--magician, mathematician and philosopher, concert pianist, internationally known writer, and author of over twenty books. Now a retired distinguished professor of philosophy and mathematics, he continues to delight audiences with performances of magic, music and readings.
