The_Brain_v1_90sqThe Brain: Considered Anatomically, Physiologically and PhilosophicallySwedenborg, Emanuel
button-buy-from-SSA-through-Amazon
The Brain follows The Cerebrum in dealing in considerable detail with the animation, or inherent motion of the cerebrum, and the predictable motion of its membranes and the cranial bones secondary to it. But this work extends the description of this phenomenon to the cerebellum and spinal cord as well.

Called the "Venice Manuscript" by scholars of Swedenborg's science, this work of 1738, which Swedenborg left unpublished, is a seminal study in many ways. His first of two major works on the brain,* this book serves to illustrate the power of induction, or reasoning from specifics to general scientific principles, at which Swedenborg excelled. It is here that he describes the animation, or intrinsic motion of the brain, and the predictable motion of its membranes and the cranial bones secondary to it.

The Soul's Domain (also known as The Animal Kingdom) is the second and last of Swedenborg's published physiological works.

Fragments of a remarkable theory about "our most subtle nature, showing that our moving and living force consists of vibrations." This prelude to Swedenborg's search for the soul is his first examination of the relation between physiology and mental consciousness. He conceives of human sensations as consisting of subtle vibrations or "tremulations."
PrinciplesChem_90sqPrinciples of Chemistry, with Other TreatisesSwedenborg, Emanuelnewchurchbooks-headerIn 1721, Swedenborg published (among other things) three treatises: Prodromus principorum rerum naturalium . . .

Reflection_300sqReflectionde Charms, George
button-buy-from-SSA-through-Amazon
In the opening chapter we read: "'There are more arcana in the doctrine of reflection than in any other whatever.' This arresting statement is found in number 733 of [Swedenborg's] Spiritual Experiences. It seems to challenge the generally accepted view . . . However, when we analyze the teaching of the Writings on the subject, we learn that it has universal application because it underlies all the other operations of the human mind . . . All consciousness depends upon it . . . Without it the Lord could not have effected the Glorification of His Human . . ."

button-buy-from-SSA-through-Amazon
Conventional wisdom suggests that science and religion are unrelated and often in conflict. Yet, both areas contribute to the totality of human knowledge. In Religion and Science Gregory L. Baker examines this relationship from both his own experience as a physicist and his religious faith-based upon the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, the eighteenth century scientist, philosopher, and theologian.

ListeningThreads_90sqThe Listening Threads: The Formal Cosmology of Emanuel SwedenborgNewton, Norman
button-buy-from-SSA-through-Amazon
A major New Church collateral work that puts Swedenborg's Principia into its proper context of Age of Reason scholarship. There have been commentaries on the Principia in the past, but none so authoritative as this. Newton uncovers Swedenborg's method, and finds his religion and science equally at work in forging radical, prescient perspectives on the major problems of the day.
NaturalBasis_90sqThe Natural Basis of Spiritual RealityBerridge, Norman J.Currently unavailable
Second printing in 2015.
The body of man is the natural object corresponding most closely to heaven and having the greatest relevance to the truly human form. Hence it is that human anatomy and physiology facilitate our understanding of the doctrine of the Grand Man. How delightful it is to think about the beauty and wonder of the bodily structure and function and at the same time to realize that it is the product of the Lord's love and wisdom descended by degrees through heavens...
