    About "Immanuel Velikovsky"

    1. Immanuel Velikovsky

      Immanuel Velikovsky was a Russian born American independent scholar, best known as the author of a number of controversial books reinterpreting the events of ancient history, in particular the US bestseller Worlds in Collision, published in 1950 Earlier, he played a role in the founding of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel, and was a respected psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.His books use comparative mythology and ancient literary sources including the Bible to argue that Earth has suffered catastrophic close contacts with other planets principally Venus and Mars in ancient times In positioning Velikovsky among catastrophists including Hans Bellamy, Ignatius Donnelly, and Johann Gottlieb Radlof 2 , the British astronomers Victor Clube and Bill Napier noted Velikovsky is not so much the first of the new catastrophists he is the last in a line of traditional catastrophists going back to mediaeval times and probably earlier Velikovsky argued that electromagnetic effects play an important role in celestial mechanics He also proposed a revised chronology for ancient Egypt, Greece, Israel and other cultures of the ancient Near East The revised chronology aimed at explaining the so called dark age of the eastern Mediterranean ca 1100 750 BCE and reconciling biblical history with mainstream archeology and Egyptian chronology.In general, Velikovsky s theories have been vigorously rejected or ignored by the academic community Nonetheless, his books often sold well and gained an enthusiastic support in lay circles, often fuelled by claims of unfair treatment for Velikovsky by orthodox academia The controversy surrounding his work and its reception is often referred to as the Velikovsky affair.

    1. In its way this book is as interesting as Worlds in Collision however, I found Worlds of Collision to be compelling because of the inclusion of the human historical documentation along with the cold scientific facts, which is why I gave this four stars instead of five What stood out in this volume was how much flack he must have taken by the butthurt priests of the scientific paradigm for him tearing the guts out of their beloved dogmatic theories, because he mentioned than once he was leaving [...]



    2. Earth in upheaval puts forth the argument of a earth formed over time by a series of natural catastrophes as appose to the doctrine of Uniformity which was a theory that is associated with the views of Charles Darwin in the 19th century It gives example after example from all over the world demonstrating how the science does not support a long gradual process for producing the world we find today The most surprising part of the book has to do with the contention that ice age Paleolithic times we [...]


    3. In this follow up volume to WORLDS IN COLLISION, Velikovsky presents only the physical evidence of earth s relatively recent upheavals, with none of the ancient tablets and legends that were dismissed by scientist opponents as useless Again, he makes a strong case He also reviews the development of the nothing happens quickly school of geology and applies his professional psychoanalyst skills to the reason it took hold.


    4. Even though many of the ideas if not all in this book have been since disproved, it is still interesting to see the views of the time and the reasoning behind them Worth a read if you actually know earth processes and history to see the logic behind the incorrect theories, but I wouldn t recommend if this is your first exposure to such topics.


    5. A scientist and researcher into the ancient text, civilizations, etc His works first published in 1950 were critized mostly by the c community because they told a different story than the c bible are today respected There are documentary videos on him on Utube that are very interesting.


    6. Another theorist of the same ilk as Erich von Daniken However, his book was much entertaining, though equally wonky.


    7. Been wanting to read this for a long time, just haven t set aside the time to focus It s a classic that I want to understand from Velikovsky s work that will help me in writing my own book.





    8. I read this book and found it interesting and grabing It s new take on the history of the earth and even if incorrect it s facinating.


    9. This is the comapnion book to Worlds in Collision Again a read a million I have readl all of IVs books several times.


    10. As always, Velikovsky challenges contemporary thinking on human history that is speculative the further we delve back into the realms of time Love his thinking
