From the ancient Polynesian navigational technique of remote viewing to the formative causation theory of Rupert Sheldrake, Other Ways of Knowing examines perceptions and practices that challenge the narrow perspective of the Western world and provide answers to the complex questions that face us as we move into the next millennium.
"Broomfield gives us the pattern that connects. A wide-ranging, erudite work. Broomfield writes exquisitely, his knowledge is huge."
"From his planet-wide explorations across times and cultures, John Broomfield has woven a marvellous multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary web of hopeful knowledge and inspiring teachings that will surely help us find our way again to a more balanced relationship with the Earth and all Her beings."

This book is a great read and it is a comfortable read. I had to read it for a Philosophy class and I rather enjoyed it from the begining and by the end I felt so fortunate for the insight on other ways of knowing that Broomfield provided. As the title implies, Broomfield focuses on how we know what we know, and his approach here is to identify the non-scientific, even religious and super-natural ways that people know.Was this review helpful?
