This companion volume to The Earth and its Cycles deals with history in the light of theosophy and is based on lectures delivered at the School of the wisdom, Adyar, Madras.
The general principles of evolutionary psychology were first expounded by Professor J. E. Marcault in The Evolution of Man and were illustrated from the history of science in studies in Evolutionary Psychology by E. W. Preston and C. G. Trew. Both these books are now out of print. The present writer, convinced of the validity of these principles, has, with permission, selected and expanded the material so that the theory many again be available to students.
Part I introduces the concept of life as an expanding spiral in nature and man.
Part II discusses racial evolution in terms of consciousness.
Part III deals with modern races and their psychology.
Part IV is an attempt to see the working out of these ideas in the present and future. It is inevitable that this portion of the work should become out of date almost as soon as it is written; but it may be of value to students to note possible future developments.
