Osteopathy and Swedenborg by Dr. David B. Fuller
The Influence of Emanuel Swedenborg on the Genesis and Development of Osteopathy, Specifically on Andrew Taylor Still and William Garner Sutherland

About this Book
The ideas of Emanuel Swedenborg have had a significant influence on the creation and development of osteopathy, particularly on Andrew T. Still and William G. Sutherland.

Still first developed osteopathy in 1874, then founded the American School of Osteopathy in 1892, an entirely new medical profession. Osteopathic medicine has grown into a broad profession covering many specialties, all having the osteopathic tradition that recognizes each patient as more than the sum of the body parts, a “whole person” approach, including recognizing the role that the musculoskeletal system plays in disease and health as well as recognizing the triune existence of body, mind, and spirit.

Many of Still’s ideas share a great similarity with those of Swedenborg: the concepts of body, mind, and spirit, fluid aspects of health contained in cerebrospinal fluid, blood and lymphatics, fascial interconnections uniting the body, the ability of the body for self-regulation and self-healing using an inherent wisdom, and more.

Sutherland, a student of Still, developed his cranial concept based on osteopathic philosophy and practice, and was greatly influenced by Swedenborg, especially his work The Brain. Sutherland’s paradigm of a cranial concept with a Primary Respiratory Mechanism shares similarities with Swedenborg’s paradigm of brain and body, which Sutherland developed into a sophisticated application of osteopathic principles and practice. Swedenborg’s descriptions of fluid and fascia and mind-body-spirit resonate with Still and Sutherland’s ideas, which show the connection of science and spirit is essential in both the development of Swedenborg’s metaphysics as well as in the development of osteopathy.

Daedalus Hyperboreus is now available for the scientist in your family! An epic part of science history. Swedenborg, a man way ahead of his time.
Daedalus Hyperboreus [“The Nordic Daedalus”] is the first ever scientific journal in Sweden and one of the first in Europe. Swedenborg himself wrote the majority of the 38 articles. Sometimes he has used Polhem’s notes and letters, and at times has carefully studied Polhem’s machines in action. In many of the articles he also describes his own inventions and experiments. They deal with such things as the construction of a flying machine, ship-building, methods to establish the longitude at sea or to find the proportion between the volume of geometrical bodies.

ISBN: 978-0-915221-55-4 (HARDBACK) with foldout plates of Swedenborg’s drawings. On Amazon.com.

Intelligent Default: Using Emanuel Swedenborg’s Theistic Science To Solve Contemporary Problems In Natural Philosophy. By Reuben P. Bell, Publisher: Swedenborg Scientific Association, ISBN: 978-0-915221-54-7. Emanuel Swedenborg came of age with the rise of modern science and the waning of religious orthodoxy. As a theistic scientist he was at odds with the naturalism of his colleagues, and as a mystical theologian he was equally at odds with orthodox Christianity. [ 277 more words ]

Wallace used spiritual influx in an argument for the advancement of women's rights--as essential to the evolution of mankind.

"Finally, the year of his death, Wallace put together the social implications of what by then had become a natural theology in 'Social environment and moral progress'. The 'spiritual influx' he appealed to nearly a quarter of a century before had now become a 'divine influx'... demonstrating the long influence of Emanuel Swedenborg, whom he he considered a 'great philosopher and seer'. The 'higher' and 'lower' races of Wallace's Victorian generation had now found a moral and intellectual equality in innately HUMAN traits. In the end, Wallace himself came to rely upon sexual selection, but not Darwin's brand. InsteadWallace came to a view of society's advancement through a teleological evolution guided by the intelligent sexual selection of women unencumbered by the artificial constraints of patriarchal social conventions. This required removing any and all constraints upon women's roles in science, business, the arts, or politics, For Wallace, universal suffrage was just one step in granting to women their rightful place in the evolutionary advancement of mankind."

An International Conference" will be the premier forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of studies on Alfred Russel Wallace…

The First German Philosopher

A few paragraphs about Swedenborg's influences as a "theosophist" on Böhme, Oetinger, and German philosophy generally.

This book investigates Hegel’s interpretation of the mystical philosophy of Jakob Böhme (1575-1624), considered in the context of the reception of Böhme in the 18th and 19th centuries, and of Hegel’s own understanding of mysticism as a philosophical approach. The three sections of this book present:…

Picture This!

Swedenborg's nebular hypothesis is cited as the beginning of our current understanding of how solar systems are formed. He is one of only five scientists mentioned in the "History" chapter of this new book published by Springer.

Astronomical concepts can be truly hard to comprehend, especially those of planetary sizes and distances from Earth and from each other. These concepts are made more comprehensible by the group of illustrations in this book, which put scale extraterrestrial objects side by side with objects on Earth…

Project MUSE - Circulating Salts: Chemical Governance and the Bifurcation of “Nature” and “Society”

A very interesting (and not hard to read) context for Swedenborg's work called "On Common Salt." It turns out to be a much more important topic than most think. Good work of history of science.

This essay traces the transnational landscape of practices involving the extraction, refining, reuse, and valuation of salts, centered in the Netherlands in the period 1750–1850. It examines how industry, agriculture, and chemistry developed together with commercial and governance relations through…
