We often speak of Theosophy as not in itself a religion, but the truth which lies behind all religions alike. That is so; yet, from another point of view, we may surely say that it is at once a philosophy, a religion and a science.

The study of religion under the spell of fascism has not received due attention. One reason for the noticeable lack of interest was the political involvement of many historians of religions. Among those who had good reason to leave the era of fascism untouched, we find prominent figures in the field. Another obstacle to examining the past impartially... more...

Tussen Europa en de Verenigde Staten bestaan verschillen in de mate waarin godsdienst een rol speelt in het dagelijks leven, en in de publieke sfeer. Waar Europa reeds lang het toneel is van een voortschrijdende secularisering, blijft godsdienst een wezenlijk element in de Amerikaanse politiek en cultuur.

Ronald Aronson has a mission: to demonstrate that a life without religion can be coherent, moral, and committed.
