The Stolen Legacy: Greek Philosophy Is Stolen Egyptian Philosophy | [George G. M. James]

The Stolen Legacy: Greek Philosophy Is Stolen Egyptian Philosophy

In this classic work, Professor George G. M. James methodically shows how the Greeks first borrowed and then stole the knowledge from the Priests of the African (Egyptian) Mystery System. He shows how the most popular philosophers including Thales, Anaximander, Plato and Socrates were all treated as men bringing a foreign teaching to Greece. A teaching so foreign that they were persecuted for what they taught.

Publisher's Summary

In this classic work, Professor George G. M. James methodically shows how the Greeks first borrowed and then stole the knowledge from the Priests of the African (Egyptian) Mystery System. He shows how the most popular philosophers including Thales, Anaximander, Plato, and Socrates were all treated as men bringing a foreign teaching to Greece. A teaching so foreign that they were persecuted for what they taught. He further shows a comparison of the teachings of the Mysteries to what they taught and with the former predating them the Professor’s point is made clear, "In truth there is no such thing as a Greek Philosophy."

    "Compelling Information Poorly Read"

    The information delivered was both compelling and of great interest, however, I was annoyed be the readers obvious intention to pronouncements, and annunciation of words leading me to question his understanding of a decidedly scholarly topic. His delivery was similar in the reading of "The Miseducation of the Negro."

    If the reader insists on continuing a career or efforts in the pursuit of the sorely needed service of delivery of important knowledge such as this I implore him to please overcome his obvious "laziness" in preparation to understand the delivery of such worthwhile subject matter that would be of service to his reputation, and the listeners' clearer understanding.

    At present the reader embarrasses himself.

    "A MUST READ!!!"

    I'm very happy with my purchase and I throughly enjoyed the information in this book. I think this should be in every library around the world.

    Story
    "This is what the world needs"

    We are all victim of the lies, the untruths and the discrepancies perpetuated by racist Europe and America… Not saying that all Europe/America is racist, but suggesting that there has been, historically, a powerful faction that have systematically divided and conquered the masses of melaninated peoples around the world The mental bondage is proving to be much worse than the physical. Stripping one of his history is a sure way to keep him contained in bondage. Information like this... Truth, is needed if we are ever to restore balance in the world. This information should be taught in all schools and infused into the curriculum.

    Story
    "Provocative, well researched."
    If you could sum up The Stolen Legacy in three words, what would they be?

    Logical, thoughtful and revealing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stolen Legacy?

    I was particularly drawn to the appendix where the author presents a snapshot of all the facts, evidence and inferences that define the source of Greek philosophy. It presents a logical if somewhat impassioned justification for the books basis: Greek Philosophy owes it's roots if not entire substance to the Egyptian Mysteries. It has inspired me to do additional studies on this subject.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Unlike a novel this is a scholarly work where each "scene" is a revelation based on examination of historical documentation and then outlining the possible steps (where the historical record is blank) that would lead to the next scene. There is no "favorite scene". There is the satisfaction of understanding the facts and like a good forensic detective, developing the most plausible and realistic scenario based on the information available.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book was moving in the sense that it called into question facts that I for one had never before considered questioning. Professor James made a comment to the effect, "that it is utterly unique in the human experience for one man, Aristotle to be proficient in virtually all the sciences and to create a body of work, that by any standard is beyond the capabilities of a single individual in a single life time." This fact alone should prompt each us to pursue a scholarly search to either affirm or disprove the conclusions which have been presented in this volume.


    Any additional comments?

    A thoroughly enjoyable and educational read. I listened to it as an audio book at first then read the text and took notes for further research. It can be tedious to read or listen to at times because of the authors meticulous attention to detail, but I found it well worth the effort and would recommend this to any one with a scientific mind and who is willing to apply the scientific method. It flies in the face of conventional wisdom and while the author has the stated agenda of elevating the stature of the African, which draws immediate rebuke and caustic responses, I believe this work stands on its own, is valid and deserves wider dessimenation and inspection. I for one will do my part on both accords.

    "Repetition"

    The narration playback repeated things quite often. It sounded like a cd skipping. The story is a better read than listening to the audio.
