Description

Horatio Willis Dresser (1866–1954) was a New Thought religious leader and author. Dresser was born January 15, 1866 in Yarmouth, Maine to Julius and Annetta Seabury Dresser.

Horatio Willis Dresser (1866–1954) was a New Thought religious leader and author. His parents were involved in the early New Thought movement through their study with Phineas Parkhurst Quimby. During his teens, Dresser's father was embroiled in a controversy with Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, whom he accused of stealing Quimby's concepts and using them as a basis for Christian Science.

Devotees of the New Thought have freely interpreted the Bible for themselves Psychology in the sense in which we now employ the term did not exist when the New Thought movement began.

Devotees of the New Thought have freely interpreted the Bible for themselves. What is needed is a spiritual science of interpretation to offset the destructive work which the age accepted without knowing what it believed. The great century that has passed also witnessed the coming of spiritism in its modern form. Psychology in the sense in which we now employ the term did not exist when the New Thought movement began. We are now so accustomed to the psychological point of view of every subject of public interest that we forget how recent it is.

The history of New Thought started in the 1830s, with roots in the United States and England. As a spiritual movement with roots in metaphysical beliefs, New Thought has helped guide a variety of social changes throughout the 19th, 20th, and into the 21st centuries. Psychologist and philosopher William James labelled New Thought "the religion of healthy-mindedness" in his study on religion and science, The Varieties of Religious Experience.

An important study of the mental healing movement, by an authoritative writer who knows his subject from the heart of it. It is the first complete history of the subject, and of its leaders and healers. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

W. Dresser book A History of The New Thought Movement is now at NewThoughtLibrary. AFTER Mr. Quimby's death, in 1866, there was little activity in the world of the new therapeutism for a number of years. Mr. Evans was practising the new method in a quiet way in Salisbury, Massachusetts, and was writing his earlier books. The Misses Ware and other patients who had manifested special interest in Quimby's teaching were still doing what they could to make that teaching known.

The Kindle version of "A History of the New Thought Movement" is not readable. The right side of Page 45 is chopped off and cannot be read. Pages 46 to 80 are entirely missing. Page 81 is chopped off on the right side and unreadable. Etc., etc. I gave up trying to read the Kindle version in frustration. I have heard similar complaints about other Kindle books, but this was my first encounter with the problem.

Amazon gives no easy way to get your money back on bad Kindle versions. You can't return it like you would a defective product, and Amazon gives you no way to tell them that a Kindle version is useless. In conclusion, don't buy the Kindle version because it is a waste of your money.

Much better than the Kindle version is the free one on the internet at [...]. Here you can get a beautiful, readable pdf version with all of the pages in the book, no pages chopped off and unreadable like the Kindle version. Sometimes, free is better.

Horatio Dresser (1866-1954) was a prolific New Thought writer at the turn of the century (he is also famous/infamous for his editing and publication of The Quimby Manuscripts: Showing The Discovery Of Spiritual Healing And The Origin Of Christian Science (1921), which suggested the reliance of Mary Baker Eddy on the writings of Phineas Parkhurst Quimby).

Dresser's "History" was published in 1919, and is doubly interesting not only for its content, but for the fact that it was written by an active PARTICIPANT in the original movement. Dresser traces the movement he calls "The New Age" (no, that term wasn't invented in the 1970s!) in the 19th century (the "epoch or religious liberalism") to a time when "Devotees of the New Thought have freely interpreted the Bible for themselves," and "the new age is witnessing a return to the original Christianity of the gospels." The Spiritualist movement was "a protest against the materialism of the nineteenth century."

Dresser traces the origin of New Thought from Quimby, to Warren Felt Evans, to the Christian Science movement, then its evolution into the New Thought movement, during which ideas arose such as "All real causes are spiritual," and "disease is the invention of man." He also notes that "There is no line of demarcation, then, between the earlier terms and 'New Thought.' Nor can one say that mental science abruptly ceases and New Thought begins."

Dresser covers (perhaps in more detail than most modern readers are interested in) the first organizations and "conventions" of New Thought advocates, and their eventual offshoots of religions such as Divine Science and Unity. He quotes "Our New Thought Movement ... is not a religion; not a sect; it is a principle, which links and unifies the world thought." He also notes that "The movement for the emancipation of woman has won the attention of New Thought leaders from the start," and that "the New thought is an 'influence,' not an institution."

The more relaxed and genteel style of Dresser's book will not appeal to some modern readers. But for those interested in the history of the ideas we now consider as "New Age," this is a fascinating and very appealing book.

In addition to being extremely well written this book on the origins and development of the new thought movement is also very comprehensive. It deals with the various leaders that emerged and their particular perpectives on truth as well as the unfolding of the different paths of thought that created the separate centers of expression across the United States and around the world. It is very enlightening to read the chapters on the First Organizations and the First Conventions. These chapters introduce to us not only some of the prominent teachers and speakers of the time but their genuine desire to lift mankind into a higher concept of himself and his relationship to God. They come from different angles but the goal is the same. That goal is stated clearly in the chapter on The International New Thought Alliance meeting in 1916 "To teach the infinitude of the Supreme One, and the divinity of man and his infinite possiblities through the creative power of constructive thinking and obedience to voice of the indwelling presence which is our source of Inspiration, Power, Health and Prosperity". Thurman L Faison, Author "To The Spiritually Inclined"
