Preface by Prof. Dr. Wolf-Friedrich Schäufele

The Practical Divinity of Universal Learning: John Durie’s Educational Pansophism   By George M. Ella Preface      What awaits the reader of a book on John Durie’s pansophism? “Pansophism” – that sounds like an esoteric secret science, like special occult teachings, like “Theosophy” and “Anthroposophy”. In fact, the opposite is true. Not an exclusive secret […]
