Part I of The Art of Knowing consists of a series of groundbreaking essays that outline the basic philosophy behind his model of reality, the Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe (CTMU), and how such a theory creates a framework for human ethos.
Part II contains essays related to neurological correlates of spirituality, the advent of machine intelligence, the mind-body connection and other topics in ethics and metaphysics. Two of Langan's very popular publicly available articles are reprinted in the collection: the ecological parable, Millennium Mouse, and the metaphorical introduction to reality theory, A Very Brief History of Time.
