              A Free Mind at Work 1990 - 2015 'Opinions and Reflections' is an edited selection of the work of a public intellectual with a distinctive independence of mind and a wide-ranging erudition. Covering a generation of writing, it begins with reflections, in 1990, on the collapse of t...he Soviet bloc and concludes with observations, in 2015, on cosmology and intelligent design. In between, in over 120 pieces, there are incisive pieces on everything from North Korea to cancer and from Charles de Gaulle to J. R. R. Tolkien. The book embodies the unique range of interests of a writer whom former Foreign Minister Bob Carr described, last year, as Australia's best intellectual.

              A Cosmological Manifesto This book consists of an essay, a credo, twelve poems and 205 aphorisms. The essay provides a personal, scholarly reflection on where Paul Monk started, forty years ago, when he left his ancestral religion behind and where he was at the point when this bo...ok was being composed. The poems are a private articulation of felt life and a set of attempts to generate a lifeworld of his own. The aphorisms are improvisations on the themes opened up by the verse and are intended to define or point to something, a sketch of reality and meaning. The twenty line Credo, which begins: I believe that all deities are idols of the mind, That blood sacrifices to them are an abomination, That dogmas are obstacles to enlightenment. sums up a life's study and reflection. The book constitutes a position, but not an argument.
