The Western Mind

During the formation of Christianity, a series of hard fought councils and creeds formulated what was the authorized thinking in the Christian West. This catholic faith dominated the minds for centuries, till its irrationality was eroded, attacked and finally overcome by a rational movement culminating in the Enlightenment. Sri Aurobindo calls its main ideas liberty, equality and fraternity godheads of the soul, and has fought to keep them alive in the build-up of the new world. The Georges van Vrekhem’s talk was held in Savitri Bhavan.

The full title of the presentation is: “The closing of the Western mind and the Enlightenment”.
