81. Sagan's "Ten Plagues" [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 2 (Winter 1977) "Velikovsky and Establishment Science" Home¦ Issue Contents Sagan's "Ten Plagues" Ralph E. Juergens PROBLEM I. THE EJECTION OF VENUS BY JUPITER Sagan opens the curtain on his analysis of what he refers to as Velikovsky's "predictions" with a remark that sets the mood for everything that follows: The ejection of "an object of planetary dimensions" by Jupiter "has never been observed by astronomers.. ." With these words he places himself in the company of eighteenth century astronomers, who denied the reality of meteorites because they had never seen stones falling from the sky. Getting down to specifics, Sagan recounts how certain nineteenth century astronomers (whom he characterizes as "early astronomers") thought Jupiter must be the source of the so-called short-period comets with aphelia near the Jovian orbit. But, says Sagan, "this is an unnecessary hypothesis" because perturbations of long-period comets by Jupiter can result in their capture into short-period orbits by the giant planet. His audience, ...

83. RECOLLECTIONS OF A FALLEN SKY - VELIKOVSKY AND CULTURAL AMNESIA : CHAPTER : [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org TABLE OF CONTENTS RECOLLECTIONS OF A FALLEN SKY VELIKOVSKY AND CULTURAL AMNESIA CHAPTER THREE PSYCHOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF THE WORK OF IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY John M. MacGregor Lecturer in Art and Psychiatry Ontario College of Art In that all of us come from different academic disciplines it seems necessary for me to identify myself and to explain my interest in Dr. Velikovsky's research. I am an art historian specializing in the application of psychiatry and psychoanalysis to the study of art. I also work as a psychotherapist which explains the involvement you will see in the paper with case material, although I have avoided individual cases with which I am working because most of them are not reaching the depth of material that I will be discussing today. It was my interest in the application of psychoanalysis to historical reconstruction that brought me for the first time into contact with Dr. Velikovsky. In Princeton, as some of you know, he is a bit of a legend, if not a bête-noire. The origin of this particular bit of research dates to an afternoon in ...
84. Straka: Science or Anti-Science? [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 3: (Fall 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered II" Home¦ Issue Contents Straka: Science or Anti-Science? Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1972 by Immanuel Velikovsky Anatomy of a Criticism I A scientist, by definition, is concerned with an objective evaluation of data; he applies proper figures and cites correct facts; he is unbiased as far as humanly possible, in drawing his conclusions; his dedication is to progress in the search for truth. Asked to comment on "Science and Anti-Science" by C.W. Straka, I limit myself to examination of his figures. Science is quantitative, and application of sterling data and figures is even more binding on a scientist than application of true measures and weights on a merchant. Straka writes: "In all this discussion it is well to keep in mind the energies involved. The rotational energy of the Earth (10 38 ergs) is a hundred million times larger than the orbital kinetic energy (~ 10 30 ergs)." The true figure for the rotational energy is ...
85. Immanuel Velikovsky: A Short Biography [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents A Short Biography Immanuel Velikovsky On June 10, 1895, Immanuel Velikovsky was born in Vitebsk, Russia. He learned several languages as a child, performed exceptionally well in Russian and mathematics at the Medvednikov Gymnasium after moving to Moscow, and graduated with a gold medal in 1913. He then travelled to Europe, visiting Palestine, France, and taking premedical courses at the University of Edinburgh. Having returned to Russia before the outbreak of World War I, Velikovsky enrolled in the University of Moscow, and received a medical degree in 1921. Then he left Russia for Berlin, where he married Elisheva Kramer, a young violinist. He edited the Scripta Universitatis, for which Albert Einstein prepared the mathematical-physical section. From 1924 to 1939 Velikovsky lived in Palestine, practicing psychoanalysis --he had studied under Freud's pupil, Wilhelm Stekel in Vienna --and editing Scripta Academica Hierosolymitana. In 1930 he published the first paper to suggest epileptics are characterized by pathological ...
86. From the Editor [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home¦ Issue Contents From the Editor A Brief Look Back The publication of this our third issue on Immanuel Velikovsky marks nearly a year since our first effort to draw the attention of the public and the academic community to the scholarly successes which Velikovsky's work has enjoyed. We originally intended, for that first issue, to publish but a single article on Velikovsky, indicating something of the nature and significance of his work, and the confirmations it has gained. But the subject matter, as if endowed with a compelling force of its own, soon grew to fill an entire issue, which in turn initiated the current series of issues. Velikovsky's address before a large audience of scientists and engineers at Harvard (Feb. 17, 1972) was the first "event" we covered. It was at Harvard, of course, that Velikovsky had faced his most intense and bitter opposition, and this lowering of the barriers, which gave him an officially sanctioned ...

88. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 3: (Fall 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered II" Home¦ Issue Contents Oedipus and Akhnaton Cyrus Gordon "However much one may cavil on this detail or that, Velikovsky has succeeded in identifying Oedipus as the Greek reflex of the historical Akhnaton." Dr. Cyrus Gordon is chairman of the department of Mediterranean studies, Brandeis University. His most recent book is Before Columbus. Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky's Oedipus and Akhnaton (Doubleday, Garden City, New York, 1960) is a tour de force that merits several rereadings. While it is written with clarity as well as verve, it involves material from different disciplines. In an age of specialization not many authors are conversant with classics, Egyptology, history, drama, mythology, archeology and psychoanalysis. An expert in any one of those fields is likely to be disturbed when a polymath like Velikovsky brings other fields to bear on his specialty. Velikovsky sees the order of things as a unit, rather than as a mass of disjecta membra. While the ...
89. "Velikovsky's Challenge to Science" [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 4 No 2: (Spring 1974) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered VII" Home¦ Issue Contents "Velikovsky's Challenge to Science" The following account of the AAAS symposium, "Velikovsky's Challenge to Science," was compiled by the staff of Pensee. Together with the texts of the papers by Irving Michelson and Velikovsky, it represents the most extensive coverage of the event in print. In one sense we begrudge the space allotted to this story. There is much research going forward which merits immediate publication, but which has been temporarily squeezed out of our pages by this narrative of events falling primarily under the heading, "The Velikovsky Affair." We had hoped the "affair" was left behind us, but such is apparently not the case. With our next issue we will return to a more extensive selection of papers dealing with the scientific and historical questions at issue. SAGAN PAPER WILL APPEAR IN PENSEE At the editor's request, Professor Carl Sagan has agreed to provide a paper for publication in Pensee. With this notice ...
90. How Stable Is the Solar System? [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home¦ Issue Contents How Stable Is the Solar System? C.J. Ransom Dr. C.J. Ransom, a plasma physicist, has taught at the University of Texas. Currently he works in the Electro-optics and Reconnaissance Group of General Dynamics, Convair Aerospace Division, Fort Worth, Texas. He teaches a course in Velikovsky theory at Texas Christian University, and has lectured on the subject at other universities in Texas, Switzerland, Germany, and England. The scientific literature today abounds with catastrophic hypotheses not unlike the events Velikovsky described in 1950. (Harold Urey has suggested that a collision between Earth and a comet splashed water onto the moon. R.A. Lyttleton believes Jupiter may have split apart in the past.) Many of these hypotheses lend additional support to Velikovsky's views. "In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."-- Galileo Galilei "Is it not the case that at ...
