Product Description

Details

The Ascent of Man is nothing less than an overview of the spiritual development of humankind. Eleanor Merry, a renowned author and philosopher, applies her wide-ranging knowledge of esoteric wisdom to argue that the past ages of the world must first be reviewed before the significance of the current age can be understood.


Her grand survey covers all the major ancient civilizations, religions and thinkers, including India, Persia and Zarathurstra, Egypt, Greece, Hibernia, Krishna and Buddha, Heraclitus and Aristotle, Melchisedek, Zion and Gnosis, before turning to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and finishing with twentieth-century philosophy and materialism.


This truly remarkable book is a classic of philosophy and anthroposophy.
