Huston Smith

Hi Gerard
I just had a look + listen to the interview linked on the front page of the site.
Huston Smith is new to me. I have not got all the way through it yet - however I have enjoyed the discussion.

In particular the modern world's loss of understanding / acknoledgement of a transcendent reality ,,, as we may say colloquially "we have lost the plot".
Also the point that the language we use to describe the day to day world has it's limitations in describing other aspects of existence.

If you can leave the link on a bit longer it would be good
Thanks

Re: Huston Smith

Justin,
I came across Houston Smith several years ago on PBS. When I happened upon this link I thought it important to give it space so others could hear what he has to say. His thinking is very much in line with Jung and Campbell. It is definitely cosmic thinking, going beyond the reasoning of modern religion and showing the commonality of all religions. He uses metaphor in ways similiar to that of Jung. Pretty much Campbillian thinking.
