  • Description

    A Groundbreaking Collection of Lectures that Shaped the Evolution of New Thought


    Thomas Troward (1847-1916) was born in Punjab India to British parents and educated in England until the age of 18.  Upon the completion of his education he returned to India where eventually served he as a Judge for 25 years.

    Shortly after returning to England, Troward began to write for the New Thought Expressions publication. He had already developed, in some detail, his philosophy of Mental Science when he was accidentally introduced to the "Higher Thought Center" of London. This group immediately recognized him as an extremely articulate and learned individual.  He was invited to give a series of lectures and in 1904 delivered his famous Edinburgh lectures at Queens Gate in Edinburgh, Scotland. These lectures were given to a very small but appreciative group of persons. However, it is said that even this captive, willing audience hardly understood what he was saying.  Still, Troward's genius did not go unrecognized.

    The philosopher William James characterized Troward's Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science as "far and away the ablest statement of philosophy I have met, beautiful in its sustained clearness of thought and style, a classic statement." It must be remembered in reading Troward that he was a product of his time.  His books use scientific jargon that was present around 1900. He was raised in the Church of England and had read the Bible daily from boyhood.

    Thomas Troward will be remembered as a pioneer of the New Thought movement from his contribution of a few small volumes that have had a profound effect on the understanding and development of spiritual metaphysics. His philosophy played a major role in the work of prominent New Thought teachers such as Emmet Fox and Ernest Holmes.
