Beyond the Robot at Colin Wilson World
Geoff Ward at the superb Colin Wilson World site has posted an intelligent and insightful review of Beyond the Robot: The Life and Work of Colin Wilson. Geoff is a long-term Wilsonian and knows his stuff, as his review shows. He contributed a brilliant essay, “Superconsciousness: the literary crux,” for the Wilson festschrift Around the Outsider, edited by Colin Stanley, which any true Wilsonian should surely check out.
Speaking of Colin Stanley, today I saw copies of his recent book, An Evolutionary Leap, at the Karnac Bookshop, here in London, proudly on display. I was so moved that I immediately wrote a review of it on amazon.co.uk. Read the review, but more to the point, buy and read the book. It is an important and necessary gathering of Wilson’s key ideas about human psychology and, as P.D. Ouspensky said it, our possible evolution.
