Focussing upon the more calamitous cosmic events affecting biological evolution and civilization's advance, this book aims to provide a better understanding of the (paradigm) shift in knowledge and social outlook which is taking place at the present time.The book contends that although m an may choose to believe in a benign cosmos, the real cosmos frequently intrudes and these intrusions have a terminating power extending from civilization to the human species as a whole. We now recognize the hazard in the forms of Spenglerian crises, cosmic winters, ice ages, impact catastrophes and mass extinction.
