Oscar takes us on an enlightened journey from 20,000 B.C. from the Magdalenian period up through Egyptian, Phoenician, Babylonian, Persian, and Greek culture. He shows how this line of culture proceeds through the Milesians, Eleatics and Platonism up to Proclus and Damascius, and presents a continuous truth that unifies and makes sense of the whole. This narrative includes the Teachings of the realized Wise Man of the ancient Platonists, Cynics, Stoics, Megarians, and Skeptics, and the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the Mahayana Tradition. He analyzes the origins of Christianity from a historical perspective, explaining and making transparent the meaning of the Mysteries of the pre-Christian world. Sources are clearly delineated, including those that show a Eurocentric point of view. Available for Kindle and for Apple Books on a MAC, an iPhone and an iPad.
The Religious Consciousness opens with “Religion is a basic fact of human culture and it appears at the very beginning of human societies.” From the beginning of the book, Oscar Ichazo brings the ancient theological point of view into this fascinating narrative by disclosing how “the concept of morality became ingrained in religion.” The book digs deep into the past and shows the influence of the oldest religions and how religion progresses in different cultures up through the 20th century. The references and comparisons are fascinating and give the reader a broad understanding of the most in-depth religious and philosophical discourses, which are explained and analyzed from the point of view of enlightenment. Available for Kindle and for Apple Books on a MAC, an iPhone and an iPad.
