You have be down as the author of Cosmic Sympathy, i can tell you that there never was such a book at least by me. A certain publishing company in Berkeley with whom I was in touch regarding something totally different (Antisthenes) asked me to write such a book, I reneged since I had done no work on posidonius, they nonetheless put it into one of their blurbs as they needed to fill it up – and every now and again I would get letters from people who saw it on amazon who don’t check anything but claim to sell everything – and now I see it is in wikipedia!! Wikipedia don’t have my real articles and books up there!!
So if anyone tells you now as I am told, what do you need books for when it is all on the internet, you can tell them that it is full of spoofs
Look at Samuel sambursky’s great works on stoic physics instead

Thank you, Menahem, for your feedback. A book entitled “Cosmic Sympathy: The Teachings of Posidonius” is indeed listed on Amazon with you as editor. It does appear to be unavailable at this time!

I have removed the book from the reference list in our article. Thank you again for taking the time to comment, and to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
