About this deal
Whereas physical power seeks to control others (by building wealth, fame, or political influence, for example), authentic power is power that is based on personal empowerment. The Seat of the Soul was very disappointing and I abandoned it after a couple of chapters and some fast skimming. As expected, Zukav starts by talking about biological evolution, but, unexpectedly, he completely misunderstands it, to the point that what he does is resurrect the idea of the chain of being, an idea which was old and hoary even by Elizabethan times (see E. M. W. Tillyard´s marvellous chapter in The Elizabethan World Picture) and which has nothing to do with evolution as expounded by Darwin. As far as I could tell, Zukav only goes downhill from them on.
