Editorial Reviews

Review

'A brilliant and singular book that shines a powerful light on our critical moment in history. Coming Home brings both vision and scholarship, rigor and imagination, to this all-important task of historical self-reflection, allowing us to glimpse profound overarching patterns that make newly intelligible not only our history but the specific challenges of our Planetary Era. With its publication, Coming Home immediately becomes necessary reading for our time -- necessary, at least, for those in our precarious civilization who know it is their peculiar calling to try to grasp the big picture as accurately as possible.' -- Richard Tarnas, author of The Passion of the Western Mind and Cosmos and Psyche 'For those travelers seeking meaning in this crisis-riven time, here is both map and provisions for the journey. This is a work of rare distinction. I bow to Kelly's respect for the radical uncertainty facing us now. His work illumines not only the inescapable nature of this uncertainty, but also its capacity to awaken and ennoble us at this turning in our human journey.' -- Joanna Macy, author, World as Lover, World as Self 'Kelly sketches an impossibly -- but all the more possibly -- Great Vision. It is not concocted of new agey spiritual pontification. It unfolds in dazzling breadth and trusty erudition, laced by a wise and earthy uncertainty.' -- Catherine Keller, Professor of Constructive Theology, Drew University; author of Face of the Deep: On the Mystery and On the Mystery: Discerning Divinity in Process 'Sean Kelly takes as his call the entire sweep of Western thought. He brings order to its profusion and finds major meanings and directions overlooked in traditional histories of ideas, all the while highlighting fascinating and forgotten clues and revealing undertows whose significance is becoming increasingly relevant and urgent in our own time. There may be other ways of ordering this vast field, but the story that Kelly presents is elegant, economical, immensely insightful, and, above all, charged with hopeful possibilities for change.' -- Freya Mathews, Associate Professor of Ecological Philosophy at La Trobe University 'Many readers will be familiar with the work of Richard Tarnas, who endorses this book by saying that it is necessary reading for our time, an assessment with which I wholeheartedly agree.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review, Winter 2010.

Format: Paperback
This is a truly unique and fascinating book, so fascinating that it took me two readings to excavate its true depth of meaning and analysis. I highly recommend it, particularly to those who want to understand some of the finer nuances concerning the evolution of consciousness. I was blown away by how Kelly could discuss so much in such a relatively short book: Hegel, Romanticism, esoteric ideas, archetypes, astrology, Jung, Jean Gebser, Ken Wilber, Edgar Morin, Stan Grof, R. Tarnas, and others. I learned something new about meta-themes in mythology as well as meta-themes in human history. I also really liked that the author is sensitive to cultural and gender bias, so it will appeal to postmodern types as well. In my view, this book is a marvel of truly integral scholarship and thinking, as it brilliantly weaves together so much into a coherent package. It ends on a positive note about our shared planetary future, yet it's still quite sober and grounded. If you're on the fence about buying it, I say go for it! You'll get more than your money's worth.

This is an excellent scholarly work. Kelly is clearly well-educated in both history and our current situation. He usefully uses an exhorbitant number of well-known, and less well-known figures, to provide background for his unique vision. Within it's brief length (175 pages) the reader can easily find him/herself remembering that we are not the first Homo Sapiens Sapiens to understand that the Cosmos is indeed enchanted. It is not too techical for the uninitated, yet thorough enough that we know he's done his homework. The end result is thought-provoking and inspiring at the same time.
