First published in 1996, Hidden Heart of the Cosmos sought to answer the question: What does it mean to be human, to live on planet Earth, in the universe as it is now understood? In this new and updated edition, published by Orbis Books, bestselling author and evolutionary cosmologist Brian Thomas Swimme takes us on a journey through the cosmos in search of the “new story” that is developing in response to this age-old question.

Brian Swimme is professor of cosmology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is author or co-author of The Universe is a Green Dragon, The Universe Story with Thomas Berry, and the Journey of the Universe, book and film, with Mary Evelyn Tucker.
