Jacob Needleman's 'Unknown World'Download audio (MP3)
During the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, philosopher and San Francisco State professor Jacob Needleman had an epiphany. Rather than fear, he experienced "a profound sense of wonder that such a movement as this could in one moment take away everything in my life." Needleman describes this "metaphysical event" in his new book, "An Unknown World" which explores the nature and "meaning" of the Earth and humans' relationship to it.
