This work will appeal to those who question Darwinist theories or find untenable the customary theological dogmas of human origin. Analysing theosophical doctrines of evolution in relation to scientific fact, the author shows that 'man is his own history': physically the repertory of all stocks below him; spiritually an 'intelligent agency' motivating and working through all forms towards evolutionary perfection. This edition contains appendices by Charles J Ryan and Blair A Moffett which compare findings of the physical and life sciences with theosophic thought.
About The Author:
Gottfried de Purucker was born on January 15, 1874, at Suffern, New York, son of an Anglican minister who for some years served as chaplain of the American Church in Geneva, Switzerland. In preparation for the ministry he specialized in Hebrew, Latin, Greek, and the writings of the early Church Fathers. However, study of Eastern philosophies and Sanskrit literature led him to theosophy with its broad comprehension of religion, philosophy, and science. After working closely with Katherine Tingley, he succeeded her as head of The Theosophical Society from 1929 until his death in Covina, California, on September 27, 1942. Perhaps his greatest contribution to the theosophical movement was his elucidation of the writings of H. P. Blavatsky, particularly her Secret Doctrine. (Link to Biographical Sketch.)
