Silent Spring by Rachel Carson

View 1 comment. May 21, Suzanne Mot rated it really liked it. Mircea Eliade is one of the most famous Romanian authors, historians and such, although he spent most of his life outside Romania Chicago, India etc. He wrote a most extensive piece of work about "The history of religions". This book is portraying culture and religion all over the world along more than years, in the blink of an eye.

For ex Mircea Eliade is one of the most famous Romanian authors, historians and such, although he spent most of his life outside Romania Chicago, India etc. For example from an general subject of how people, even from ancient times started to orientate their cities and surroundings based on some sort of cosmogonic model of city building , which always has a middle point basically it shows how for religious people disorder and chaos can prevail if they don't have a center point in this homogenous Universe;and that is shown in the way they build cities, with a temple always in the middle of the city, with some simbolic towers and facing East etc.

From this "zoom out" perspective, he starts to give examples all over the world, Iran, Thailand, Brazil etc. The book has many different cultural themes, the notion of death, occultism and esotericism, influences on famous authors many french authors were into occultism for example , different groups of different systems of belief and it shows how this particular system of belief came about. Moreover, he really puts emphasis on some famous philosophers and how they got their ideas based on certain myths and so on. It is really fascinating how he manages to find so much information from different sources and his analytic spirit always puts an emphasis on how a certain movement occured in similar times in different regions of the world.

He describes and analyzez such phenomena from an objective point of view and doesn't leave the impression that he clings to any of these ideas developed by the humand mind across centuries. It is a really worthwhile reading for anyone who is into experiencing certain misteries of life or just wants to have more in-depth knowledge of "the beginning of it all". I rated it with 4 stars because it is not the kind of book one gets attached to, but it is rather very informative and excellent in doing so.

My own lack of familiarity in the esoteric terms sent me to the dictionary multiple times, making the reading all the more interesting. The bizarre sexual practices in this one was annoying but hardly the author's fault. Jul 13, Joseph F.

Eliade sheds some interesting opinions on these topics. The only problem is that only 3 of the essays really deal with what the book purports to be about. The other 3 essays, though interesting especially the essay on death! I think they were thrown in to make this publication book length.
