Item description for Ancient and Modern Physics (Large Print) by Thomas E. Willson...
These fundamental principles have been discovered and applied in the past fifty years--in the memory of the living. They have revolutionized science in all its departments. Our textbooks on Chemistry, Light, Heat, Electricity and Sound have had to be entirely re-written; and in many other departments, notably in medicine and psychology, they have yet to be re-written. Our textbooks are in a transition state, each new one going a step farther, to make the change gradual from the old forms of belief to the new, so that even Tyndall's textbook on "Sound" is now so antedated, or antiquated, that it might have been written in darkest Africa before the pyramids were built, instead of twenty years ago.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ancient and Modern Physics (Large Print)?
Metaphysics, not physics Jan 7, 2006
While the description of this book makes it appear to be a history of the science of physics, do not be fooled. It is actually a Theosophical treatise on occult philosophy. Not being a Theosophist myself, I cannot comment on the work's fitness or suitability within the field of Theosophy. But as a text about physics or the history thereof, it is pretty much useless. I was hoping to read a history of the science, as this is a topic I find quite interesting, and was quite disappointed to find myself instead with a rambling description of manifested planes, etheric globes and septenary worlds.
If you are not specifically seeking an occult text about metaphysics, I would advise to avoid this book. Instead, try looking for a used copy of Isaac Asimov's excellent (but unfortunately out of print) History of Physics or the Oxford Guide to the History of Physics and Astronomy.
If, on the other hand, you *were* searching for the Theosophical treatise - you found it. Enjoy.
