Jeffrey Mishlove reflects upon the meanings implicit in modernist and post-modernist movements of the past 130 years or so. He describes the influence of psychoanalysis, depth psychology, and quantum physics upon art, literature, and culture. Citing the poet, T. S. Eliot, he proposes that we are engaged in a journey that will take us back to the earliest origins of human thought – only to recognize it for the first time.
