The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search For God.
New York: The Penguin Press, 2006. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Shirley, (please see p. 262) With thanks for all you did to make this book possible- Ann 4 October 2006." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Illustrations editor and scientific consultant Steven Soter. The late great astronomer and astrophysicist describes his personal search to understand the nature of the sacred in the vastness of the cosmos. Exhibiting a breadth of intellect nothing short of astounding, Sagan presents his views on a wide range of topics, including the likelihood of intelligent life on other planets, creationism and so-called intelligent design, and a new concept of science as "informed worship." Originally presented at the centennial celebration of the famous Gifford Lectures in Scotland in 1985 but never published, this book offers a unique encounter with one of the most remarkable minds of the twentieth century.
