Reader's note

This brilliant first edition title more than deserves a place on your vintage bookshelf! With this work, Arthur Koestler completes a cycle which he began with The Sleepwalkers and continued with the Act of Creation. Those books were concerned with scientific discovery and artistic inspiration - the glory of man; The Ghost in the Machine ends with a discussion of man's urge to self destruction - the predicament of man. Koestler provides a facinating and penetrating analysis of the contrast. This book is the perfect literary gift for anybody interested in history or philosophy.
