Co-sponsored with the Swedenborg Foundation and Southern Illinois University, Carbondale USA.
In his third lecture, ‘America’s Reform Tradition: Swedenborg, New Church and the Doctrine of Uses’, John will guide the audience through how Swedenborg gathered widespread interest across the world, and particularly in America. Why did this unpretentious and devout man resonate for so many Christians and non-Christians alike, influencing movements including Transcendentalism, homoeopathy, spiritualism and Zen Buddhism?
DR JOHN S HALLER, JR is emeritus professor of history and medical humanities at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. He has written on subjects ranging from the history of race and sexuality to medicine, pharmacy and spirituality. His most recent books include 'Distant Voices: Sketches of a Swedenborgian World View' (published with the Swedenborg Society in 2017) and 'Swedenborg’s Principles of Usefulness: Social Reform Thought from the Enlightenment to American Pragmatism' (Swedenborg Foundation, 2020).
The talks coincide with the publication of 'Swedenborg’s Principles of Usefulness: Social Reform Thought from the Enlightenment to American Pragmatism'. A 20% discount will be offered via the talks.
