The combination of the latest brain research with the new image of the shape of reality emerging from quantum physics challenges us to see ourselves anew, according to Pearce, who provides a wealth of knowledge about how we develop, learn, create and relate to the universe we inhabit. He suggests that intelligence is much more than just brainpower and may, indeed, have its source in the human heart. For anyone interested in understanding how we learn and grow, his ideas are challenging and profound. Pearce is the author many books including
Crack in the Cosmic Egg (Simon & Schuster 1971),
Magical Child (Bantam 1980),
Magical Child Matures (Bantam 1986),
Evolution's End: Claiming the Potential of Our Intelligence (HarperSanFrancisco 1992), and most recently
The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit (Park Street Press 2004),
The Death of Religion and the Rebirth of Spirit: A Return to Intelligence of the Heart (Park Street Press 2007).
