Emerson and Universal Mind (e-Book)

EMERSON AND UNIVERSAL MIND
by Richard G. Geldard

“A brilliant, forceful, cogent, eloquent and personal brief for the essential validity of the great Neoplatonic doctrine of ideas, and a wholly believable effort to place Emerson firmly in that tradition.”

ROBERT D. RICHARDSON
Author of “Emerson, The Mind on Fire”

_______________________________

In 1870, the new young president of Harvard College, Charles Eliot, in an effort to expand and strengthen the study of philosophy, established what he called the University Lectures and invited Ralph Waldo Emerson, among others, to give a series of eighteen lectures of his own choosing. For Emerson, this was an opportunity to summarize his life-long vision of Idealism, a vision which had formed the central set of principles in what came to be known as New England Transcendentalism.

Emerson’s experience as part of this course was hardly comfortable. He was under tremendous pressure to work quickly and to fit his material into the overall series of lectures. As it turned out, his proposed series of eighteen became seven and the material itself was not a survey of world philosophy but a summation of Emerson’s theories on the nature of the mind.

Over the years scholars have tended to minimize, even to the extent of total neglect, what remains of these late lectures, assuming that Emerson’s intellectual and expressive powers had diminished, rendering this material irrelevant. However, his good friend, editor, and biographer James Elliot Cabot, whose task it was to gather Emerson’s papers into some order, said this of Harvard’s invitation to lecture: “Emerson welcomed the proposal as an opportunity for taking up and completing his sketches of the ‘Natural History of the Intellect,’ which he appears to have regarded as the chief task of his life.”

Given Cabot’s observation here, this commentary intends to give serious attention to what remains of these lectures in order to fill a valuable gap in Emerson’s attention to the laws of the mind and by extension also provides a more accurate and complete assessment of Transcendentalism as an important contribution to the history and influence of American philosophy.

Liberty At The Millenium

By Norris Hansell, M.D.  Illustrations by Miro Salazar

Through the written and spoken words of the founders of the United States, this work aims to provide a compact rendition of the central ideas in our founding documents. The eloquent works of the founders are presented without commentary. The book extends beyond the work done in Independence Hall by Jefferson, Penn, Hamilton, Adams and Madison, to include the words of those less known—Phillis Wheatley, Paul Cuffe and Hiawatha. The central idea in the founding of America was liberty, its indispensability for the robust life of citizens, its need for protection by a government of special design. Looking ahead, the founders anticipated that Americans ever would need to guard their liberty because of its long history of fragility before the forces intrinsic to all governments.

New Atlantis Continued (e-Book)

By Francis Bacon and R.H. Esquire. Introduction by Manly P. Hall

NEW PDF e-Book

Now available exclusively for download!

New Atlantis was begun by Lord Verulam, Viscount of St. Alban’s, also known as Francis Bacon, and was summarized and continued in 1660 by a mysterious figure known only as R.H. Esquire. Considered one of the most important of the Utopian writings because it envisions the advancement of all branches of learning in the Western hemisphere. Originally published in Latin in 1624, Bacon portrayed a vision of the future of human discovery and knowledge, expressing his aspirations and ideals for humankind. The creation of a utopian land where “generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendour, piety and public spirit” are the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants. This and other works by Francis Bacon are thought to have been the inspiration for the formulation of Britain’s Royal Society.

NEW PDF e-Book

America’s place in the essential progress of civilization is revealed in Manly Hall’s epic on the founding of America, our continent set aside for the great experiment of enlightened self-government. Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, evidence is presented which indicates that the seeds of this plan for the founding of America were planted one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian era.  Whether discussing the symbolism of the Great Seal of the U.S. or the mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence, here is a book sure to fascinate.  It shows how the brilliant plan of the ancients, concealed from the common view, has survived to the present day and will continue to function until the great work is accomplished.

Secret Destiny of America, with: “America’s Assignment with Destiny”

by Manly P. Hall

Published under license by Tarcher/Penguin

Manly Hall’s two classic works on the hidden history and occult mission of America are each reprinted in this special two-in-one volume. Drawing upon neglected fragments of history, The Secret Destiny of America presents evidence for the mysterious “Great Plan” at the core of the nation’s founding. The Secret Destiny of America links the fascinating strands of esoteric history that lie at America’s heart, the symbolism of the Great Seal, the prophecy of George Washington’s birth, and the role of a mysterious stranger who swayed the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

About The Secret Destiny of America: The fascinating story of how the American continent was colonized by Europe. Described by Francis Bacon as the “New Atlantis,” it was seemingly set apart for the great experiment of enlightened self-government long before the founding fathers envisioned the rise of the American Republic. Drawing upon often neglected fragments of history, Manly P. Hall presents evidence indicating that the seeds of democracy were planted one thousand years before the beginning of the Christian Era, suggesting that America is not merely a political and industrial entity, but an “assignment of destiny.”

About America’s Assignment with Destiny: The unfolding story of the esoteric traditions in the Western Hemisphere is revealed, beginning with the rites and mysteries of the Maya and Aztecs. Parallels are drawn between the miracles of the Native-American medicine priests and wonder-workers of India. Also included: an account of the Incas of Peru and their possible contact with Asia; the role of Francis Bacon in organizing the English settlements in America, and the contributions of German mystics through the Pietists, Mennonites, Dunkers and Quakers. The American Revolutionary period and important personalities of the time are examined, as are the Latin American patriots Simon Bolivar, Miguel Hidalgo and Benito Juarez.
