HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY COURSEWORK:
Exploring Roots: Experiencing the inspiration that led to our teachings
This course provides the student with an understanding of the historical roots in America of Ernest Holmes’ philosophy. Specific emphasis is given to the works of Thomas Troward, Emma Curtis Hopkins, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Our purpose in this course is twofold: First, to bring into sharper focus our grasp of Science of Mind fundamentals by exploring the soil in which Holmes’ ideas took root; and second, to savor with pure enjoyment the richness of the rational, philosophical, and mystical concepts contributed by our three great writers.

Books: The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes, Emerson’s Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science by Thomas Troward, and Scientific Christian Mental Practice by Emma Curtis Hopkins
