The Philosophers of Atlantis with Jason Reza Jorjani

source: New Thinking Allowed   2016年8月25日
Jason Reza Jorjani is a philosopher and faculty member at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He is author of Prometheus and Atlas.
Here he reviews the writings about ancient Atlantis that appear in the philosophical literature. He focuses on Plato, Francis Bacon, Rudolf Steiner, and Colin Wilson. When taken as a whole, this literature is suggestive of an advanced civilization that may have existed about ten thousand years ago. Its inhabitants possessed a consciousness very different from that of modern humans. Jorjani speculates that various archeological mysteries can be resolved if one treats these philosophical accounts as embodying some remnants of actual history. He suggests that we are still haunted by the memory of Atlantis and that this may account, in part, for the resistance toward parapsychology today.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). He is a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration. He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities.
