171. Let There be Darkness: The Reign of the Swastika by Lewis M. Greenberg [Journals] [Aeon]
... ] tainted- perhaps forever" and "transmogrified into an icon of terror and hate." The author is no stranger either to myself or, probably, to most AEON readers, since he served as an associate editor of the journal Pensée in the early 70s, which was the intellectual source of this reviewer's first exposure to Immanuel Velikovsky's writings on ancient history and cosmology. Following that, Greenberg went on to become a driving force in the subsequent journal KRONOS and, later, one of the editors for AEON. He is currently a professor of Ancient & Oriental Art History at the Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia. This is the first volume of a new ...

173. "I Am Passionately Devoted To The Principle Of Freedom Of Thought". File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... sent O'Neill a copy of the review of Worlds in Collision by Neugebauer in Isis and that he had previously asked O'Neill's help in having Neugebauer appointed one of the publisher's censors of that book- on the eve of its publication. Now he reminded O'Neill of the disastrous results of his not having followed this advice and proposed that O'Neill, too, write to Macmillan, my original publisher, a chiding letter. O'Neill answered: I am unable to see eye to eye with you on the statement that Velikovsky's work is a hindrance to the cause of learning rather than a help. I, perhaps, am the only one who has had opportunity to become acquainted with Velikovsky's complete work. ...
174. The Oracles and their Cessation - a Tribute to Julian Jaynes [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of original thought in it [Jaynes' book] is so great that it makes me uneasy for the author's well being: the human mind is not built to support such a burden. I would not be Julian Jaynes if they paid me a thousand dollars an hour." Concerning the question: why does religion exist? ' Stove writes: "This is the question of questions concerning Homo sapiens. And I want to commend and argue with a book published some dozen years ago which to my mind comes closer to answering that question than everything else I have read about the matter put together." Stove goes on to show how Jaynes has demonstrated that consciousness (or ...
175. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... frank and honest, especially with regard to what isn't known. One of these: "the tectonic motion of large crustal plates appears not to have played the dominant role in altering the surface that tectonic motion has on earth" is of especial note. Perhaps Anon of New Scientist would care to swallow his words? E. Burgess, writing for New Scientist 28/8 /80 (" Beneath the veils of Venus") p. 661-4 gives us the same story but from a slightly different viewpoint. His article is illustrated with artists impressions of Venus surface features, and orientated towards the search for plate tectonic activity on Venus. We are told, on the one ...
176. Plato And The Catastrophist Tradition [Journals] [Kronos]
... sponsored by KRONOS. Other papers from that seminar will be appearing in the pages of KRONOS as well. - LMG. The Western philosophical tradition was characterized by one of its greatest exponents, Alfred North Whitehead, as a series of footnotes to Plato. It was no understatement. Of all the thinkers of antiquity, Plato alone had his writings preserved virtually intact. Those works have conveyed to us, in a form of surpassing literary excellence, the central problems and essential concepts of the sub-disciplines which soon came to be categorized as cosmology, epistemology, ethics, politics, metaphysics, and theology. Yet the purpose and meaning of this vast work, despite its easy accessibility and ...
177. A Response to Forrest [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a parallel reading of Velikovsky's book with his own. He also anticipates "uproar" from adherents of Velikovsky's theories, "not least because I, a mathematician by trade and training, have ventured into a literary field", but counters this with the claim that "Velikovsky himself was no more qualified in these matters when he ventured to write Worlds in Collision" - a nice (and symptomatic!) example of the rejection of the value of a psychoanalytic training for the study of products of the human mind! In the section on Ipuwer, Forrest's open approach has clear limits. First, he has not referred to Gardiner's pioneering 1909 publication (the translation used by Velikovsky ...
178. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:6 (Aug 2000) Home | Issue Contents Vox Popvli The Standard of Longitute Frederic Jueneman, from Newark, California, writes: In his debate concerning ancient maps, Sean Mewhinney stated that the standard of longitude was set by the British Admiralty. [1 ] This is not quite correct. The Longitude Act of July 8, 1714, during the reign of Britain's Queen Anne, established a Board of Longitude which had eight "blue ribbon panel" members, two of which were the First Lord of the Admiralty and the Commissioner of the Navy, with the rest from academia and government. Three prize grades were established- respectively: £ ...
179. The Threat. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... called Worlds in Collision." He explained the rage of the scientists against Macmillan for not having labeled the book as fiction: "Velikovsky differs from other crank scientific writers in that he has the art of making the impossible seem plausible.... I must say that in areas of the book where I am not fully informed the writing seems almost convincing...." It is not excluded, he wrote, that the Macmillan Company was "led astray by this high degree of plausibility" or by my ability to make the impossible seem plausible. "Hence, the position of the Doubleday Company in buying the rights to Worlds in Collision represents a considerably lower ...
180. "A Very Genuine Responsibility". File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... " in the June issue of Reader's Digest. For that article, taken by itself, I commend you. I regret the necessity of qualifying this by admitting that my view of it was strongly discolored by your review of "Worlds in Collision" in the March issue. After asserting that he was "not in the habit" of writing such letters, he explained: My reason for writing to you at this time is that you had a part in advancing to the best-seller category a book that scientists confidently appraise as mere rubbish and the most flagrant intellectual fraud ever foisted upon the public. To put it bluntly, for which I apologize, your one article earnestly attacks ...
