Revised and updated, Conversing With The Planets interweaves astronomy, mythology, and anthropology to explore what the universe means to us and what it meant to our ancestors. Aveni also deftly illustrates the influence of our culture and beliefs on the path of scientific discovery, tracing the rise and fall of astronomy as blown by the prevailing winds of religious, philosophical, and political change.
