Enlightenment to Enlightenment (July 1993)
Intercritique of Science and Myth
Henri Atlan - Author
Lenn J. Schramm - Translator

This book is a thorough and critical, comparative analysis of the logic of modern scientific thought and of traditional teachings generally referred to as mythological and mystical.
