The Brain: Concidered Anatomically, Physiologically, and Philosophically
Emanuel Swedenborg

In 1743 Emanuel Swedenborg completed his second major work on the human brain...'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 abd the cranial bones secondary to it. But this work extends the description of this phenomenon to the cerebellum and the spinal cord as well...Other sections of the work describe the structure and function of the cerebellum, and pineal and pituitary glands; ...In these and other parts of 'The Brain', Swedenborg clearly anticipates the discoveries of anatonomists and physiologists to come.

The Rational Psychology: A Concordance of Subjects
Harold F. Pitcairn

This unique volume is the culmination of Harold Pitcairn's life-long interest in The Ration Psychology, Emanuel Swedenborg's 1742 treatise on the causal relationship of the human mind and soul. Much more than a subject index, this reference book presents the essential points of the Rational Psychology in Swedenborg's own language.

This book allows the reader to navigate the complexities of Swedenborg's terminology with respect to the mind and soul: causally linked as one, but operating discretely as body and spirit. Pitcairn has made this terminology accessible, as a guide for the reader who wishes to penetrate into Swedenborg's model of the soul-body interaction. His attention to detail makes it a valuable research tool.

Rational Psychology
Emanuel Swedenborg, Translated by Norbert H. Rogers & Alfred Acton

Written by Swedenborg in 1742, this work represents the culmination of the author’s planned works in the Economy series. Detailed examination of the human mind from the innermost soul down to its most earthly and sense-based elements. Considers the nature of emotions and passions as well as different kinds and levels of ideas, and the process of thinking. Concludes with discussion of the effect on the mind of bodily death, with speculations as to which mental elements perish at death and which survive. Includes Swedenborg’s first use of the distinctive term and concept of “conjugial love”—a spiritual married love lasting to eternity. This work is the fullest treatment of the mind in Swedenborg’s pretheological period, and one of the most widely read. It is remarkable that the author was not sufficiently satisfied to publish it —perhaps because his outline implied the eventual death of too many mental processes. Swedenborg felt it necessary to seek the soul through fuller anatomical study of its kingdom in the series of “tomes” entitled Animal Kingdom. Index.

The Economy of the Animal Kingdom, Volume III: The Fibre
Emanuel Swedenborg, Translated by Alfred Acton
Though clearly prepared for the press, this work was not published by Swedenborg. It was written in 1741-42. The work treats of the medullary fibre of the brain, the nerve fibres of the body, the arachnoid tunic, and diseases of the fibre. The latter part treats of both physical and psychological pathology. Particularly important philosophically is a 30-page section on Swedenborg’s doctrine of forms, a crucial doctrine in his causal theory. Author and subject indexes.

Psychologica

PsychologicaEmanuel Swedenborg / Translated by Alfred Acton

Taken from one of Swedenborg's journals in which he took notes on various works by other authors, these notes are interspersed with entries recording his travels in 1733 and 1734. Psychologica comprises the extensive notes taken on Psychologia Empirica of Christian Wolff (1679-1754) accompanied with substantial commentary by Swedenborg.

Swedenborg's reading of the Psychologia Empirica came at a crucial point in his intellectual development as he sought a way to demonstrate the existence of the soul. And we are fortunate to have recorded in this volume the evidence of his eager reception of some of Wolff's ideas and his reactions against others.
