Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Philosophical Research Society is a nonprofit organization founded in 1934 for the purpose of assisting thoughtful persons to live more graciously and constructively in a confused and troubled world. The Society is entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control. Dedicated to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems, the Society's program stresses the need for the integration of religion, philosophy, and the science of psychology into one system of instruction. The goal of this instruction is to enable the individual to develop a mature philosophy of life, to recognize his proper responsibilities and opportunities, and to understand and appreciate his place in the unfolding universal pattern.

About the Author

Manly P. Hall was the founder of the Philosophical Research Society. In over seventy-five years of dynamic public activity, he delivered more than 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, and authored countless books, essays, and articles. In his lectures and writings, Manly Hall always emphasized the practical aspects of philosophy and religion as they applied to daily living. He restated for modern man those spiritual and ethical doctrines which have given humanity its noblest ideals and most adequate codes of conduct. Believing that philosophy is a working tool to help the individual in building a solid foundation for his dreams and purposes, Manly Hall steadfastly sought recognition of the belief that world civilization can be perfected only when human beings meet on a common ground of intelligence, cooperation, and worthy purpose.

More About the Author

Manly P. Hall (1901-1990) founded the Philosophical Research Society in 1934, a non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of useful knowledge in the fields of philosophy, comparative religion and psychology. In his long career, spanning more than 70 years of dynamic public activity, Mr. Hall delivered over 8000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.

Many of Mr. Hall's lectures have been transcribed and are available as pamphlets; others were taped live, and the audio recordings are available on CD's as well. He is perhaps best known for his 1928 classic, "The Secret Teachings of All Ages," an encyclopedia of the world's wisdom traditions and symbolic disciplines.

Today, younger generations are re-discovering the works and words of Manly Hall, finding that the material he put forth so many years ago is still relevant and useful today. Mr. Hall's hope for humanity was to learn from the greatest minds of all times so that we may solve current problems - both in society and in the individual - today.

Format: Paperback
Manly Hall's short book on the history on the authenticity of the Rosicrucians is a well documented and researched book. Originally published in 1949, Hall examines the original texts of the Rosicrucians, such as the The Fame and Confessions of the Fraternity of the R. C. Hall questions the author, the reality of Rosicrucian Order and what the intentions behind it was. Like many, by now, have understood that it is very probable that a Rosicrucian order did not exist in the 1600's at the time of the publication. But because of the mystery that surrounded it, along with its popularity of the time, many people claimed to have belonged to such an order. Yet, no real author was stepping out to claim authenticity or validity of the Rosicrucians, so, many charlatans would step out of the woodworks and claim they belonged to the order in to gain notice or money. Yet, this stil does not dispell the problem created by the original Fame and Confessions. Further problems arose when the Chemical Marriage of Father Christian Rosencreutz. Hall is not altogether convinced that these two books are related, nor that R. C. refers to Chritian Rosencreutz (or that he was a real person). What Hall does deduce through all of these problems is that it may be very likely that Johann Valentin Andreae is the most likely author of the original Fame. Furthermore, that Rosicrucianism is not a real order to be initiated into, but rather a state of being or mind that one attains. One book that Hall highly reccomends in conjunction with reading the Fame and Confessions is Lord Bacon's Novum Organum as he believes he points out the author of this mysterious book.

I was lucky enough to make this my first book into the subject. This is by far the most useful information I have ever read in a small pamphlet. It has opened up a window into myself as much as it did into the past. I was both glad and disappointed to find myself on a level where I would least expect it. The idea of Shakespeare as an elaborate movement instead of an individual supports my beliefs in more than one way. Gentle direction into the last son of Elizabeth I was of an amazing value. We can all use a Tutor that can teach us how to teach ourselves and there is no better way to do it than to put our founding grandfather right in front of our eyes again.
