Warum wir (an Gott) glauben: Eine kompakte Einführung in die by J. Anderson Thomson

By J. Anderson Thomson

Gott ist von Menschen gemacht

J. Anderson Thomson und Clare Aukofer gehen in diesem kompakten und prägnanten Werk der Frage nach, wie und warum der Geist des Menschen religiöse Überzeugungen hervorbringt. Thomson, der sich in forensischer Psychiatrie und Evolutionspsychologie einen Namen gemacht hat, untersucht die Bestandteile und Ursachen des religiösen Glaubens genauso systematisch, wie ein Wissenschaftler die Bewegungen der Himmelskörper oder die Evolution des Lebens analysiert: Für ihn sind sie ein ganz und gar natürliches Phänomen. Gemeinsam mit Clare Aukofer trägt er gewichtige Belege aus Psychologie, neurowissenschaftlicher Kognitionsforschung und verwandten Fachgebieten zusammen und legt so leicht verständlich und überzeugend dar, dass Gott (oder die Götter) von Menschen erschaffen wurden und nicht umgekehrt. Mit diesem schmalen Band empfiehlt sich Thomson gleichermaßen als lesenswerter Autor wie als führende Stimme in dem Bemühen, Vernunft und Wissenschaft den Vorrang gegenüber faith und Aberglauben zu verschaffen.

By Robert Ambelin

Réédition d'un ouvrage publié en 1939, ce titre du célèbre érudit est une étude exemplaire de l'ésotérisme architectural et décoratif de Notre-dame de Paris, dans ses rapports avec le symbolisme hermétique, les doctrines secrètes, l'astrologie, l. a. magie et l'alchimie.
Dans l'Ombre des Cathédrales est une oeuvre a fait couler beaucoup d'encre, mais elle révèle malgré tout l'érudition de ce "cherchant" de 32 ans, qui devait devenir un Maître de l'ésotérisme par l. a. suite. Cet ouvrage est le creuset de toutes les idées de Robert Ambelain et il y a des issues extrêmement importants qui ne peuvent pas être développés dans une préface, mais qui sont explicités par l"auteur dans los angeles suite de son oeuvre magistrale de fifty two ouvrages. Il a en outre rédigé beaucoup d"articles pour les announcements internes de Memphis-Misraïm et pour de nombreuses autres revues (sans compter ses conférences publiques ou privées).
« Dans l'Ombre des Cathédrales » est un de ses ouvrages fondamentaux. Souhaitons que d'autres ouvrages du même auteur soient réédités.
En synthèse, Robert Ambelain a marqué le XXe siècle de l'occultisme, il fut, répétons-le, le véritable Maître de ces nouveaux « Compagnons de los angeles Hiérophanie ».
« Dans l'Ombre des Cathédrales » préfigure déjà l. a. démarche initiatique qu'il devait mener ultérieurement. C'est pourquoi il convient de lui accorder une très grande recognition. C'est un livre fondamental pour ceux qui veulent évoluer sur le sentier de los angeles connaissance, avec méthodologie, prudence et sagesse.
