Book description
The book that explodes the Von Daniken myth. This illuminating expose was prepared in collaboration with professional scholars and designed to provide the first viable alternative reference to an amazing phenomenon of pseudoscience now taking the world by storm.

Swiss author, Erich von Daniken, the leading proponent of the "ancient astronaut theory," has reportedly achieved sales of over 25 million books, translated into 32 different languages around the world.

Writing from the standpoint of philosophy of science, the author of The Von Daniken Affair (an Honors graduate in philosophy from the University of Arizona) presents a detailed view of the chief claims made by van Daniken and others, while offering a convincing set of alternative explanations for the benefit of all interested readers (i.e. the general public as well as high school and college students) who have, to date, been provided with only the pro-side of the astronaut-god hypothesis.

Also included are many examples of logical fallacies, factual inaccuracies, and the author's own contention, that the new "pop-cosmology" represents a close parallel with classical mythology from a psychological point of view, and is of profound sociological significance in today's world.
