Things to Come
The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, has announced the following program on “The Secret Doctrine by H. P. Blavatsky” for March 15, 2013, 1 to 2pm.
Professor Garry Trompf, Dept. of Studies in Religion, University of Sydney will discuss The Secret Doctrine by H.P. Blavatsky. To this day it remains a controversial book with esoteric and occult references attempting to reconcile ancient eastern wisdom with modern science, giving rise to the doctrine of theosophy. Some of the aspirations appear as topical today as when they were written and an interesting book for those who are interested in its views on materialism, and theories on human origins.
The event will be held at the campus’s Red Centre, Rm 3085. Garry Trompf is Emeritus Professor, Department of Studies in Religion, at the University of Sydney. His latest contribution to Blavatsky studies is the chapter “Theosophical Macrohistory” in Brill’s Handbook of the Theosophical Current.
