Latest book update: The new book cover is shown here, and The Ancient Art of Holistic Thinking: Philosophies of Holism in Ancient Egypt & Greece is now available in ebook format first for preorders and for a sneak preview on my Smashwords author site.
Representative of the subject matter of the text, the cover art symbolically draws on both Greek & Egyptian philosophical ideas and imagery. The Greek key motif or geometric meander pattern borders the top and bottom, while composite Egyptian solar symbolism is highlighted in the artwork at center focus. The starry cosmic background and nature symbolism sets the tone for the ancient guidance of learning to read, interpret and attune to the ‘Book of Nature’, as revealed through the holistic worldview of the ancients. As demonstrated within the text, Platonic, Presocratic, Pythagorean & Egyptian philosophies each provide different yet complementary ways of reading the kosmos, and they articulated their ideas through various means including: detailed conceptual analysis, as well as visual, sensory media, mathematical symbolism, natural philosophy, cosmology myth, analogy, metaphor, art, music/sound.
