Publisher Comments:

Jensen's furthest-reaching book yet, Dreams challenges the destructive nihilism of writers like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris who believe that there is no reality outside what can be measured using the tools ofscience. He introduces the mythologies of ancient cultures and modern indigenous peoples as evidence of alternative ways of understanding reality, informed by thinkers such as American Indian writer Jack Forbes, theologianand American Indian rights activist Vine Deloria, Shaman Martin Prechtel, Dakota activist and scholar Waziyatawin, and Okanagan Indian writer Jeannette Armstrong. He draws on the wisdom of Dr. Paul Staments, author ofMycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World, sociologist Stanley Aronowitz, who discusses science's lack of accountability to the earth, and many more. As in his other books, Jensen draws heavily from his ownlife experience living alongside the frogs, redwoods, snails, birds and bears of the upper northwest, about which he writes with exquisite tenderness.

Having taken on the daunting task of understanding one'sdreams as a source of knowledge, Jensen achieves the near-impossible in this breathtakingly brave and ambitious new work.
