42. The Velikovsky Archive [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The Velikovsky Archive Jan Sammer NOTE: This paper was first read at the Conference held at the University of Bergamo, Italy, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision, in October 2001. When I first came to work for Immanuel Velikovsky as his assistant twenty-five years ago in the summer of 1976, one of the first things he did was to show me a dark-red three-ring file entitled "All Books." The first page of that file contained a list of all the books Velikovsky had still intended to write and publish. For a man who had just turned eighty-one, it was an ambitious list indeed, but I did not think it would have been in good taste to suggest it was unrealistic. After all, Velikovsky claimed that quite a few of the titles just needed to be "put together," while many others were "practically complete." The list contained forty titles in all. About half of them had percentages next to them ...
43. Velikovsky: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1995 (Vol XVII) "Proceedings of the SIS 1995 Braziers College Conference" Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow Clark Whelton The core of Immanuel Velikovsky's work is deceptively simple, immediately apparent, and easy to overlook, though it is found in the earliest pages of his earliest book. In the preface to Worlds in Collision Velikovsky tells us the essence of what he hopes to accomplish. 'Can we, out of this polymorphous material, extract historical facts?...In a few cases it is impossible to say with certainty whether a record or a tradition refers to one or another catastrophe that took place through the ages; it is also probable that in some traditions various elements from different ages are fused together. In the final analysis, however, it is not so essential to segregate definitively the records of single world catastrophes. More important, it seems, is to establish 1. that there were physical upheavals of a global character in historical times; 2. that these catastrophes were caused ...
44. Immanuel Velikovsky 1895-1979 [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol IV No 1 (Autumn 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Immanuel Velikovsky 1895-1979 It is with deep regret that we report to members the death on 17th November of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky. Dr Velikovsky was born in Vitebsk, in Byelorussia, the son of businessman and scholar Simon Yeheil Velikovsky, and his early years were spent against the turbulent background of the Czarist Russia of Nicholas II, the Great War and the Russian Revolution. By 1918, Simon Velikovsky's involvement in the struggle to establish a Jewish national home in Palestine brought the family under the surveillance of the newly-established Communist regime's Secret Police and family upheaval followed. As described by Velikovsky: "... I took my parents, threatened by arrest, to the Ukraine and the Caucasus, where we spent over two and a half years in vain efforts to reach Palestine. During these years of civil war we saw much destruction and ourselves came close to being engulfed." Despite such obstacles to his education he succeeded in continuing his studies at the universities of Edinburgh and Karkhov ...
45. Courses On Velikovsky [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home¦ Issue Contents Courses On Velikovsky Colleges and universities around the country are offering courses based on Velikovsky's work. During the past few months Pensée's editors have learned, incidental to routine conversations, of many courses dealing with Velikovsky's work in colleges and universities around the country. The ones we have heard about undoubtedly represent only a small fraction of those which have been or are being offered. We publish this very limited compilation for the information of our readers: Dr. John M. Bell, Associate in Arts Degree Program, New York University. The Unity of Knowledge. "1) The resistances to integrative scientific knowledge; 2) the epistemological power of a unified, interdisciplinary approach to scientific and social realities. Velikovsky's work comprises an important part of the course." Yearly, spring term. Dr. Donna Boutelle, Department of History, California State University (Long Beach). History of Western Civilization. Utilizes Velikovsky's reconstructed chronology. Fall, ...
46. The Cornell Lecture: Sagan on A Wednesday [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 1 No 3 (1993) Home¦ Issue Contents The Cornell Lecture: Sagan on A Wednesday (1) Lynn E. Rose In order to feel the depths of antagonism that some astronomers feel toward Velikovsky, let us examine a lecture by Carl Sagan, one of the leading expositors and popularizers of current astronomical dogma. Sagan's lecture was given just a little less than a year before the Symposium of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (A.A.A.S.) in San Francisco, at which he was billed as Velikovsky's principal opponent. We will examine this lecture in some detail, since it presents many of the same themes and claims that resurfaced at the A.A.A.S. Symposium in February of 1974 --and on other days as well. On Wednesday, March 28, 1973, the much-traveled Dr. Sagan stopped off at Cornell University, where he spends some of his time, and gave a lecture on "Venus and Velikovsky." Although the lecture was part of a freshman course on General Astronomy taught by Frank Drake, ...
47. Velikovsky and Oedipus [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon I:6 (1988) Home¦ Issue Contents Velikovsky And Oedipus Ev Cochrane It is well-known that Velikovsky first came to America to pursue research with regard to a project on Freud's heroes: Moses, Oedipus, and Akhnaton. (1) As a direct result of this research Velikovsky was led to revolutionary new insights concerning the recent history of our solar system, as well as a reconstruction and synchronisation of the ancient histories of the Near East. What is less well known is that Velikovsky's inspiration for this study came, at least in part, from his indignation over Freud's treatment of Moses in Moses and Monotheism. Velikovsky published Oedipus and Akhnaton in 1960, his fourth book, and the second work in a series of historical reconstructions. Despite the pivotal role which Oedipus and Akhnaton plays in Velikovsky's overall reconstruction, not to mention its historical significance with regard to the author's intellectual development, it is surprising how little criticism-- favourable or unfavourable-- this work has generated amongst Velikovsky's followers. (2) Surely no one who ...
48. Carl Sagan: A Life by Keay Davidson [Aeon Journal $]
... through my column in R&D Magazine, but I, in turn, perhaps wouldn't have given him much more than a passing thought if it weren't for the notoriety which had preceded his appearance during one of the Jupiter fly-by festivities at Ames. However, in stark contrast to my own superficial impressions, Davidson apparently had laboriously and devotedly followed his career quite closely and had accumulated a wealth of information from numerous sources that should give greater insights into the complex personality that was Carl Sagan. Because of his studied animosity toward Immanuel Velikovsky, those readers who otherwise knew about or followed his vicissitudes and his generally futile attempts for recognition by the scientific community will probably be somewhat polarized in their appreciation of Sagan the man versus Sagan the celebrity. For an example, just a few years ago at a conference held in Portland, Oregon, an antithetical commentator referred to him as "the late unlamented Carl Sagan," [4 barely two weeks after his death on December 20, 1996, much to the ghastly amusement of the generally biased audience. Davidson's book ...

50. A PERSONAL MEMOIR [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon III:1 (Nov 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents A Personal Memoir Warner B. Sizemore It was five years after the publication of Worlds in Collision (1950) that I first heard of Velikovsky. I was doing post graduate work at Lincoln University and my professor of Biblical Studies was taking the class on a field trip to the University of Pennsylvania archaeological museum. From the back seat of the car I overheard a discussion concerning Velikovsky, a name I was hearing for the first time. Somehow I had missed the heated debates following the publication of that volume. Our professor, Dr. Donald Davies, was very favorable to Velikovsky's ideas and I made a note to look further into his work. Little did I realize how that discussion was about to change my life. Actually the discussion that day had centered on Ages in Chaos, Velikovsky's second book published in 1952. The next day I purchased the book and was immediately fascinated by his startling reconstruction of ancient history in which empires were shifted by centuries and others were said ...
