Review:

" Animals naturally do what Christian de Quincey recommends we humans do: forge an unobstructed dialogue between the mind and the heart, and ' feel our thinking.' We are not alone; we are part of an infinite web of relationships. In cultivating the art of relationship, we reunite mind and heart, becoming conscious collaborators with the mysteries that stir within us, around us, and beyond us. In Radical Knowing, de Quincey shows us how it is ultimately through conscious, consensual relationships that we mine the depths of what it means to be a human tuner and receiver for a much vaster intelligence, ultimately fulfilling our destiny: that of ' giving voice to the cosmos.' "

" . . . opens the way for a new kind of science that honors wisdon as much as truth."

" A ground-breaking book . . . valuable guidance on how to put spirituality into practice."

" The first book from a philosopher to address consciousness from such a multidimensional point of view."

" Christian de Quincey takes us right to the metaphysical heart of relationship, and, in doing so, pushes back the frontiers of consciousness."

" The most mysterious question confronting us is consciousness--its nature, origin, and destiny. Radical Knowing reveals dimensions that are crucial for anyone in our third millennium. Highly recommended!"

" Radical Knowing deals with one of the most important, and neglected, subjects: how we know what we know. Christian de Quincey writes in joyfully simple language and thinks through complicated questions with great clarity. As soon as I heard about this book it went straight to the top of my must-read pile."

" A ground-breaking book. Christian de Quincey brings a lifetime of studying consciousness to a little-explored aspect of the subject--its essential role in all our relationships. More than just philosophy simply explained, Radical Knowing offers valuable guidance on how to put spirituality into practice in our lives."

" A better understanding of the nature of consciousness may be the best, and perhaps the only, way we can move out of the morass of crisis, chaos, and violence in these troubled times. We need to feel our way (rather than just ' know our way' ) to a more sustainable and peaceful world. Anyone who wants to be part of the solution rather than part of today' s problem should read this gem of a book."

" If interconnectivity is an inherent feature of life, as both ancient wisdom and postmodern science suggest, then relationships are primary to the human experience, not secondary additions to ' our lives.' Starting here, Radical Knowing takes the reader on a provocative journey beyond the boundaries of traditional philosophy. Expect reversals of perspective, innovative formulations, and, most importantly, opportunities to experience anew the integral fabric of consciousness."

From the Back Cover:

PSYCHOLOGY / SELF-HELP "The first book from a philosopher to address consciousness from such a multi-dimensional point of view." --Amit Goswami, Ph.D., author of The Self-Aware Universe "A better understanding of the nature of consciousness may be the best, and perhaps the only, way we can move out of the morass of crisis, chaos, and violence in these troubled times. We need to feel our way (rather than just 'know our way') to a more sustainable and peaceful world. Anyone who wants to be part of the solution rather than part of today's problem should read this gem of a book." --Ervin Laszlo, author of Science and the Akashic Field "Christian de Quincey takes us right to the metaphysical heart of relationship, and, in doing so, pushes back the frontiers of consciousness." --Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of Conscious Loving and Lasting Love In Radical Knowing Christian de Quincey makes a provocative claim: We are not who we think we are. Instead, we are what we feel. Giving disciplined attention to feelings reveals the most fundamental fact of life and reality: We are our relationships. Most of us think we are individuals first and foremost who then come together to form relationships. De Quincey turns this "obvious fact" on its head and shows that relationship comes first, and that our individual sense of self--our "private" consciousness--actually arises from shared consciousness. This shared, collective consciousness is at the heart of indigenous ways of life and their worldviews. De Quincey explains that participating in shared consciousness literally builds the fabric of reality, and that understanding this process is key to unlocking our potential for higher consciousness and spiritual evolution. He presents the technique of Bohmian Dialogue, developed by groundbreaking quantum physicist David Bohm, as one method for experiencing this powerful process. He also explores the mystery of synchronicity, offering a new understanding of the relationship between matter and mind and the underlying nature of reality. CHRISTIAN DE QUINCEY, PH.D., is a professor of consciousness studies at John F. Kennedy University; cofounder of The Visionary Edge, committed to transforming global consciousness by trans-forming mass media; and an international speaker on consciousness, cosmology, and spirituality. He is also the award-winning author of Radical Nature and the coauthor of The Scientific Exploration of Consciousness. He lives in Half Moon Bay, California.

Book Description Inner Traditions Bear and Company, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. A radical reassessment of what we mean by "consciousness" and how we experience it in relation to others - Shows the importance of integrating different ways of knowing--such as feeling and intuition, reason and the senses--in our approach to life - Discusses the technique of Bohmian Dialogue where you can learn not only to "feel your thinking," but also to experience true communion with others In Radical Knowing Christian de Quincey makes a provocative claim: We are not who we think we are.
