2. Velikovsky: A Personal Chronological Perspective of His Final Years [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:1 (Nov 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky: A Personal Chronological Perspective of His Final Years Frederic B. Jueneman (c) 1992 by Frederic B. Jueneman A Rare Encounter It is a singularly unique event in one's life to come to know with comparative intimacy an historical personage whose scholarship one has been admiring from afar for many years. Usually the closest one comes to approaching such an event is through the rather one-sided, vicarious pleasure of reading an author's books and then sharing by means of his words a new and fascinating view of the world: An empathetic weltanschauung. It was slightly over twenty years after I first read Worlds in Collision that I discovered Immanuel Velikovsky's other books and assorted papers. And it was then, by way of his publisher, that I actively sought him out, initially through curiosity and later, after receiving a treasured reply, through a deeper, more studious interest in both him and his work. But so much has been written and discussed about Velikovsky over the last forty years that ...

4. Velikovsky in America [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:4 (Dec 1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky in America Duane Vorhees [T he community and traditions of science...maintain it against the barbarism, the chaos, the infatuation with novelty, and the wishes for an easy victory over reality constantly assailing it. Science is maintained by the discipline of apprenticeship. The continuity between new and old is important to it; that which is new, no matter how well established as "fact" or argued as theory, will be rejected if it does not fit into what is known-- unless and until connections between them can be demonstrated. In addition, the acceptance and rejection of ideas in a realm where skill as well as knowledge is involved...usually imply consequences of performance. The too facile rejection of an old, perhaps inconvenient idea, the over enthusiastic espousal of another, lead inevitably to oversimplification and may lead to practices that erode the discipline...-- Marshall Edelson The issue at hand, I submit, is vigilantism: the judgment of a ...

6. "Worlds in Collision": Reviews and Reviewers [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:6 (Dec 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents "Worlds in Collision": Reviews and Reviewers Duane Vorhees From the publication of Worlds in Collision in 1950 until his death in 1979, Immanuel Velikovsky was in an unusual position. His financial future was assured-- all of his books remained in print through his lifetime, and some of them went through dozens of hardcover and softcover reprintings-- but his reputation was permanently tarnished. Whenever establishment figures wished to make a statement about pseudoscience or the occult, or later to castigate the Scientific Creationists, they usually deemed it necessary to include Velikovsky in their denunciations-- even though Velikovsky shared their abhorrence for religious fundamentalism. In fact, in the 1960s, when a new, more restive, generation of Americans began taking his ideas seriously and accepting the man himself as a sort of underground cult figure, Velikovsky was embarrassed rather than pleased: the mystics and hippies and academic outsiders were no substitute for legitimate recognition. In 1973, Velikovsky told a Nassau Community College audience that ...
7. The Last Days of Velikovsky [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents The Last Days of Velikovsky Anne-Marie De Grazia Angouleme I knew Velikovsky for two years, until his death. I almost accompanied my husband, Alfred, to what was going to be the last meeting ever he would have with Velikovsky, that was on Wednesday, November 14, Velikovsky would die on the 17, a Sabbath. It was a beautiful fall afternoon in Princeton, characteristic of the climate of the Northeast of the United States. Somewhere near the top of Harrison Street, I let Alfred go on alone, after he had asked if I wanted to come with him. He had important things to talk with him about- two days earlier, on Monday, we had visited Velikovsky together and Alfred had offered to write an article that he would draft which would then be revised by Velikovsky and sent out in finished form. Alfred was trying something no one had done before, co-sign an article with Velikovsky. They had once decided to collaborate on a book ...
8. An Interview for Television with Immanuel Velikovsky [Horus $]
... From: Horus Vol. 1 No. 3 (Fall 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents An Interview for Television with Immanuel Velikovsky Don Riggs In 1977 Don Riggs of WPXI (then WIIC.) Television of Pittsburgh, was invited to interview Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky at the Velikovsky home in Princeton, New Jersey. Dr. Velikovsky conversed at length on camera with Mr. Riggs in the Fall of 1977. The following is an edited and abridged transcript of that conversation. Early on, Mr. Riggs asked Dr. Velikovsky to describe the remembrance of his early education at Medvednikov Gymnasium. He recalled that his family moved from Vitebsk in Latvia, to Moscow when he was almost seven specifically because- Dr. Velikovsky:... my mother wished to give us, her three Sons, the best possible education, and for that reason she strove to come to Moscow and live there... My father had to be registered as a- oh, a man of special qualifications in order to be, after several years, admitted for settlement ...
9. Letter [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... NINETEEN CHAUNCY STREET CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS 02138 May 2, 1977 The Editor New York Times Book Review 229 W. 43rd Street New York, N. Y. 10036 Dear Sir: For over 40 years I have relied upon the New York Times Book Review for fair, accurate, well written and informative reviews of current books. I am dismayed now to find such reliance is no longer justified. The article entitled ? Velikovsky Lives Again ? which appeared in the April 17 issue, meets none of those criteria. It is a calculated insult to an 81 year old scholar; an arrogant, scoffing criticism which contains inaccuracies in every paragraph. Presumably, you selected Dietrick E. Thomsen, physical sciences editor of Science News to write the article (I avoid the word ? review ? intentionally as the article does not review either of the books listed.). If the purpose of selecting Mr. Thomsen was to make sure that Dr. Velikovsky would be subjected to a grossly unfair criticism of the lowest order, the choice was perfect. The suggestion ...
10. Remembering Velikovsky [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon IV:2 (Aug 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents Remembering Velikovsky Martin Sieff Lynn Rose has stated that, in the future, our era may well become known as the Age of Velikovsky, a prediction that must seem as ridiculous to most people as one given in Vienna in 1900 to the effect that we were then entering the Freudian Age, or of a statement in 1920s Prague that we had entered the Age of Kafka. To those deeply familiar with the scope and quality of Immanuel Velikovsky's achievements, however, the prediction is neither absurd nor a joke. What, instead, seems awesome is the degree to which Velikovsky's work appears to have been successfully ridiculed and denied by mainstream establishment over three generations, while the physical evidence in its support continues to pile up relentlessly. I became acquainted with Velikovsky's work in 1969 while I was still a young student at Exeter College, Oxford, through my friend, David Cohen, at that time a freshman at Oriel College, who had himself been introduced to it by Rabbi Sidney Leperer ...
