The Imaginal CosmosPrior to the scientific revolution, prophetic practices could be comprehended in the context of the prevailing world view. To date modern science has been unable to verify the credibility of such arts. Contemporary findings in a variety of disciplines however, suggest that we may indeed have some form(s) of prior knowledge of the future. If so, our view of prophecy and the prophetic arts could be due for revision.

In The Imaginal Cosmos "…new theories and methods for the study of divination are suggested: most significantly, a phenomenological approach, which considers divinatory knowledge and practice on its own terms. As many of the authors are practitioners of astrology and divination, the divide between 'etic' and 'emic' perspectives begins to close, pointing towards a new methodology not only for divination, but for religious studies in general."
