1. De Grazian Discography (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents REVIEWS De Grazian Discography Reviewed by Brian Moore Quantavolution and Catastrophes: a collection of 15 volumes by Alfred de Grazia on CD-Rom. Published by Metron Publications in collaboration with Shape Multimedia Creations, 1997. The 15 volumes on the ROM* are, or will be, available in printed books. Some are also available on floppy disks. (Updates on titles available can be found, along with other features, on the internet at: http://www.grazian-archive) In 1910, Bernard Shaw stated: 'The technical history of modern harmony is a history of the growth of toleration by the human ear of chords that at first sounded discordant and senseless to the main body of contemporary professional musicians'. Thus the Musical World of 1841 could propose that 'The entire works of Chopin present a motley surface of ranting hyperbole and excruciating cacophony', while they are now regarded as a pinnacle of melodic and harmonic invention. As above, in the elevated world of music ...

... From: SIS Review Vol VI No 4 (1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Focus S.I.S. MEETINGS S.I.S. Spring Meeting, 1983 The Spring Meeting at the Library Association welcomed the Society's good friend Dr Alfred de Grazia, Research Professor of Social Theory at New York University, as its first speaker. Taking as his theme "Homo Schizo- the Catastrophic Evolution of Man", de Grazia presented some of the most important results of his many years of interdisciplinary research. He began by briefly reviewing Immanuel Velikovsky's Mankind in Amnesia (1982) and Julian Jaynes' The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind (USA: 1976, UK: 1979). While both works provide valuable insights into the human psychological make-up, they fall short of a satisfying explanation for the origin of the human psyche. In particular, while he agreed with Velikovsky's proposition that our ancestors were severely traumatised by a number of global catastrophes, de Grazia eschewed any idea that by stripping off the layers of past experience, we could somehow arrive at a picture of ...

... From: SIS Review Vol VII Part A (1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Bookshelf THE VELIKOVSKY AFFAIR Inside Job COSMIC HERETICS by Alfred de Grazia (Metron Publications, Princeton, 1984; $23). Brian Moore This is undoubtedly the most continually engrossing of all de Grazia's books to date- particularly for the non-specialist as it tells a fascinating story, replete with an all-star cast of remarkable characters. (As it also features a walk-on part for this reviewer, the reader must allow for bias in the rest of this review!) Cosmic Heretics is comprehensively subtitled "A Personal History of Attempts to Establish and Resist Theories of Quantavolution and Catastrophe in the Natural and Human Sciences, 1963 to 1983". The book is "personal" on several levels. Though autobiographical, its form is biographical; de Grazia appears for the most part in the third person, as "Deg", with a commentating "I" occasionally peeking over his shoulder: an uncommon literary device but possibly not too surprising coming from the author of a work entitled Homo ...

... Yet one's surprise turns into sheer amazement when we read that William Beaumont- with the exception of his matchless biblical exegesis- had developed almost identical ideas to those of Velikovsky and some of his ideas were published 25 years before Worlds in Collision [6 appeared in print. In fact, Beaumont had written no less than three lengthy books on colliding planets, cometary catastrophes (which he associated with the Exodus catastrophes) and revised chronologies- all of them published before Velikovsky entered the cosmic arena [7,8,9. De Grazia [10 lists Beaumont's main ideas as follows: 1. The geology of the world's surface is largely catastrophic. 2. The catastrophe was caused by a cometary collision. 3. All geological formations were shifted as a result. 4. Cosmic lightning played a major role. 5. Hydrocarbons were present in cometary tails. 6. Ancient chronology was several hundred years too old. 7. The Ancient calendars had to be revised because of the catastrophe. 8. Many species were extinguished catastrophically. 9. Religion was born ...

... From: SIS Review Vol 1 No 3 (Summer 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents In Vol. I, No.1 of the Review we published a paper by PETER JAMES querying Velikovsky's identification of Aphrodite with the Moon and presenting evidence that she was the planetary goddess of the Evening Star. In the following article, based on extracts from his unpublished book, "The Disastrous Love Affair of Mars and Moon", Professor ALFRED DE GRAZIA argues against this. Aphrodite The Moon or Venus? (Continued) Alfred De Grazia DR ALFRED DE GRAZIA is Professor of Social Theory at New York University, and heads the research project into Revolutionary Primevalogy. If Peter James is correct in identifying Aphrodite with the planet Venus, eschewing her identification with the Moon, orthodox classicists will be pleased, and, as he says, Immanuel Velikovsky will be wrong, and Ralph Juergens will be wrong. Furthermore, I shall be wronger than anybody, for I have circulated a book in fugitive form now for three years that is based upon the thesis that Aphrodite is very much ...

"We dedicate this book to people who are concerned about the ways in which scientists behave and how science develops. It deals especially with the freedom that scientists grant or withhold from one another. The book is also for people who are interested in new theories of cosmogony- the causes of the skies, the earth, and humankind as we see them. It is, finally, a book for people who are fascinated by human conflict, in this case a struggle among some of the most educated, elevated, and civilized characters of our times." These are the opening words of Dr de Grazia's introduction to the second edition of The Velikovsky Affair. The essays in this book made a significant contribution to the "struggle" ...

... trauma is responsible for mankind's aggressive hostility, a concept of importance to every individual frightened by the prospect of thermo-nuclear war or of the instability which seems to be increasing in society. It is also responsible for the inability and at times the outright refusal of science to recognise the overwhelming evidence pointing to the catastrophic past of the Earth and the entire Solar System, and, in part at least, for the actions of some scientists, who denounced Velikovsky without even reading his work. "The second paper, authored by ALFRED DE GRAZIA, an internationally recognised expert in politics and social systems, discusses the origin of fear. While preparing the special issue of the American Behavioral Scientist devoted to the scientific community's reactions to Velikovsky's revolutionary cosmology, de Grazia developed an interest in his theories which has culminated in several investigations into the origins of human nature and the development of human institutions. A part of that work is included here. "De Grazia maintains that fear is ubiquitous in its influence upon the behaviour of mankind. It pervades all social institutions and creates the ...

... , at the same time developing the implications of his theories in many fields. He avoided no challenge, even the notorious AAAS Symposium of 1974, where the manipulations of the organisers excluded his scientific supporters from the platform leaving Velikovsky alone to face four specialists in seven hours of gruelling debate. The standing ovation granted to him by the 1400-strong audience leaves no doubt as to the verdict of the witnesses. Dr Velikovsky was working and studying until the day of his death. His accumulated correspondence and work in progress form what Alfred de Grazia has called "the greatest archive in the history of science", and under the supervision of Velikovsky's close colleagues these writings will eventually be made available to stimulate the enquiring minds of future generations. Velikovsky spoke particularly to the young, a Princeton lecture typically concluding: "I call you to cross the barriers between sciences... My work is not finished...it is in your hands. It is up to you to decide if you wish to repeat what the authorities told you or to become authorities yourselves- to ...

... our predecessors of the High and Far Off Times was the idea that the gods are really stars, and that there are no others. The forces reside in the starry heavens, and all the stories, characters and adventures narrated by mythology concentrate on the active powers among the stars, who are planets. A prodigious assignment it may seem for those planets to account for all those stories and also to run the affairs of the whole universe." GIORGIO DI SANTILLANA and HERTHA VON DECHEND: Hamlet's Mill Chaos and Creation Alfred de Grazia Since he first became involved with Velikovsky's work over fifteen years ago as editor of "The Velikovsky Affair", Dr Alfred de Grazia has pursued researches ranging widely over the many disciplines affected by these revolutionary theories of repeated, cosmically-induced, worldwide catastrophes- catastrophes that occurred in the time of Man. This book is one of the first fruits of that study. CHAOS AND CREATION is the first systematic attempt to put quantavolution, more often called neocatastrophism, upon a firm foundation. The rapid stream of revolutionary facts and theories of ...

Applying the term "Peoples of the Sea" to a construction of a fourth-century Ramesses III is already a warning sign of trouble ahead; one cannot move Martian events to the fourth century; one may not give Ramesses III a special "Peoples of the Sea" of his own. The Glasgow chronology may find its clincher by research of Martian-Period disasters in Egypt, possibly finding the evidence around the time of Merenptah or Ramesses III. ALFRED DE GRAZIA Research Professor of Social Theory New York University Catastrophic Spelling Sir, When Dr Alfred de Grazia's talk to the Society of 26th April 1980 was reported (under my editorship) in SISR, his version of neo-catastrophism- a theory of evolution occurring in leaps coaeval with recountable catastrophic episodes- was referred to as "quantevolution" (SISR IV:4, pp. 74-5).

As Peter Hallberg pointed out in relation to the Icelandic skalds, when history is transmitted through a succession of professional bards with highly trained memories and powers of recollection, there is reason to believe that, when put into writing even after a few centuries, the details remain more than reasonably accurate [3. Thus Alfred de Grazia was echoing received opinion when he stated: "We know from general anthropology and ancient literature that an exact rendition of a large body of verse and prose (such as Homer's Iliad and other epic works) can be transmitted over generations and centuries... in the period of oral transmission, trained speakers can memorize and reproduce exactly thousands of lines heard from the lips of a teacher."

I might go into the stacks one day, and come out to discover that a catastrophic world war had meanwhile begun and ended. 'Your friend is dead!' I thought, 'Velikovsky!'

Despite the effects of jet lag, Professor de Grazia, besides bringing members the news from America reported in the following pages, discoursed at length and answered a large number of questions on the Flood, radiocarbon dating, the origin of Religion, Saturn and the earlier catastrophes, the age of the Moon, and his own researches into the origin of the (schizotypical) human brain, the history of the Moon, and the destructions of ancient civilisations by catastrophic fire. This last subject, which Professor de Grazia subsumes under the new heading of "Palaeo-Calcinology" (see Kronos review), and which he applies particularly to the destruction of Troy IIg, brought the meeting to a reluctant close. Those aspects of the meeting not covered in this issue will be reported next time. Catastrophist Geology Han ...

The final speaker of the day was PROFESSOR ALFRED DE GRAZIA of New York University. His presentation, The 1500 BC Catastrophe: Ten Absolutes for Testing (an advance on the six "absolutes" advertised), proposed a novel approach to the systematic testing of one of Velikovsky's major theses, and introduced (among others) the new term quantevolution. Dr de Grazia explained: "I'm doing essentially what the last two speakers have done: I'm reversing the order of things.

... THEORY AND SOCIETY and in ZETETIC SCHOLAR. Viewed in the wider social context, the conflict between Velikovsky's views and the scientific community can be seen to be symptomatic of long-standing opposition between competing world-views, with heavy religious overtones. IF THE CONTROVERSY which began with Worlds in Collision has spawned a wealth of publications dealing with various implications of IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY'S work and with the merits of his catastrophism vis-ā-vis prevailing scientific notions, there is as well a growing assortment of efforts which attempt to explain the social dynamics of that dispute. Articles by DE GRAZIA, POLANYI, MULKAY, DOLBY, STORER, MARTIN, and my own recent efforts all take steps in this direction [1. Readers of SISR are likely to be particularly familiar with a number of the above which have been printed, reprinted, discussed or otherwise reviewed in these pages [2. Whatever useful insights may emerge from these sometimes varied, sometimes overlapping accounts, the so-called Velikovsky "affair" cannot be adequately understood unless that case is placed in a larger socio-cultural context.

... people began to take them seriously, some scientists began to regard him, not merely as a crank, but as a dangerous man who was undermining the authority of science. Thus, in addition to the "objective" considerations, there was a "political" reason for continuing the attack on him. Physical scientists were therefore entitled to reject Velikovsky's work, by the standards of judgement employed in physical science. But let us consider the relationship of their rejection to rational ideas of scientific method. In The Velikovsky Affair, de Grazia criticises the physical scientists for defending a rationalistic view of science while dismissing Velikovsky without full consideration. For example, he quotes Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin: "We who are engaged in research are not concerned in preserving the existing framework of theories. We spend our lives searching for the wherewithal to modify and supplant them. The discovery of discordant facts is cause of rejoicing, not consternation. If Velikovsky had adduced any real evidence that compelled a revision of the laws of celestial mechanics, astronomers would have accepted the facts, and the challenge ...

I chose this method because in many ways it seems the most imperturbable, even under quantavolutionary [1 conditions.
