520    This book addresses important current and historical 
       topics in astrobiology and the search for life beyond 
       Earth, including the search for extraterrestrial 
       intelligence (SETI). The first section covers the 
       plurality of worlds debate from antiquity through the 
       nineteenth century, while section two covers the 
       extraterrestrial life debate from the twentieth century to
       the present. The final section examines the societal 
       impact of discovering life beyond Earth, including both 
       cultural and religious dimensions. Throughout the book, 
       authors draw links between their own chapters and those of
       other contributors, emphasizing the interconnections 
       between the various strands of the history and societal 
       impact of the search for extraterrestrial life. The 
       chapters are all written by internationally recognized 
       experts and are carefully edited by Douglas Vakoch, 
       professor of clinical psychology at the California 
       Institute of Integral Studies and Director of Interstellar
       Message Composition at the SETI Institute. This 
       interdisciplinary book will benefit everybody trying to 
       understand the meaning of astrobiology and SETI for our 
       human society.
