Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is an attempted scientific study of illuminated individuals. Bucke provides three dozen very consistent examples of 'cosmic consciousness.' Some of these are the usual suspects, and others are contemporary case-histories which Bucke collected. Bucke proposed that these enlightened figures are evolutionary jumps, the precedecessor of a more advanced species.


Richard Maurice Bucke (18 March 1837 – 19 February 1902), often called Maurice Bucke, was an important Canadian progressive psychiatrist in the late nineteenth century. An adventurer in his youth, he went on to study medicine, practice psychiatry in Ontario, and befriend a number of noted men of letters in Canada, the U.S., and England. In addition to writing and delivering professional papers, Bucke wrote three book-length studies: Man's Moral Nature, Walt Whitman, and – his best known work – Cosmic Consciousness, a classic in the modern study of mystical experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Life changing for those who have been awakened 31 août 2016
Par Kelly - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I found an old hardcover copy of this book in an antique store on the central coast of California. I didn't buy it then, but after reading only a few sentences of it at the bookstore, I ordered this paperback. The paperback is a nice larger size for reading and easier to read than the older book. It seems to be a forgotten about book, but for me, it is life changing and has propelled me into a new level of consciousness. I had a cosmic consciousness awakening just as described in this book in 2011, and I literally became a different person. This book describes my experience just as it happened, and happens to be a guide and support for me now. It allows me to be a "new species" of human and expand in a direction I didn't know about until I read this book, and I'm only 40 pages into it! I can only read a few pages at a time, because it all needs to be absorbed well before reading more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A remarkable study of people who experienced Cosmic Consciousness, written in 1905 10 juillet 2017
Par Beau Lee Jackson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book was a remarkable study for it's time, written in 1905. It should be read by every theology and psychology student in college, who wants to understand deeper levels of consciousness. It is simple study in some ways and uses a simple method. Our methods and editing would make this a much different book today and would include woman and many authentic Indian saints of recent days past. (e.g. Autobiography of a Yogi). However for it's time, it' s a remarkable book. He at one place writes that the Indian yogi techniques are not legitimate...but did the author ever even travel to India? I assume not, whereas he would have been on a ship for months to cross the ocean. He did very well in light of his information. However, these days, there are many who have reached this state of Cosmic Consciousness...including sadhus in the Himalayas and some ordinary house-holders who don't advertise their level of spiritual development, and a few rare gurus (although most now have not reached this state!). I would of liked the author to tell the reader about his own interest in this topic and spiritual experiences but he does not mention it and focuses instead on other's experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of a Kind! 22 décembre 2012
Par Jeremiah Cox - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
One of a kind, this book was written ca 1900, and was one of the first books to posit, and study scientifically, a fundamental cosmic experience underlying all world religions. Bucke described the experience in detail based on an empirical study of the available evidence in the form of case studies. Two of the better known "cases" are Jesus of Nazareth (who referred to it as the Kingdom of Heaven) and Gautama the Buddha (who called it Nirvana). Bucke saw the frequency of the phenomenon to be increasing exponentially throughout history and foresaw that it would culminate in a world populated with people having the emerging faculty. He concluded that the future of mankind was "indescribably hopeful."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 needs major editing 22 août 2010
Par Untamed - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought the General books edition on price alone. I don't know whether other editions suffer the same fate.

While this book is unparalleled in its description and illumination of cosmic consciousness, it takes great patience to wade through a format that leaves one mid-sentence, begins a separate paragraph that seems to have no relation to the prior one, mid-sentence, has random letters and spacings, and, without warning, shifts to another language. Sometimes a word is divided in the middle and completed two paragraphs later.

When I got into the examples of cosmic consciousness, I felt my heart and third eye flow and fill with light, so this book definitely contains high octane material. I just hope that another edition is easier to navigate.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cosmic Consciousness by Richard Bucke. 19 mai 2009
Par Raymond Smullyan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the best book I have ever read on any subject related to religion or mysticism. [ Indeed, I devoted an entire chapter to it in my book WHO KNOWS and in my forthcoming book on Transcendentalism and Cosmic Consciousness.] It advances the remarkable thesis that through the process of evolution, the entire human race is slowly but surely developing the kind of consciousness possessed by the great religious leaders,mystics, artists and poets of the past. The author predicts that with this kind of consciousness, one will be in direct sight of that which was formerly believed only on the basis of faith or authority. The book quotes the writings of many of those whom the author claims to have had Cosmic Consciousness, and these writings are superb! Regardless of whether or not the author's thesis is true, the book has enormous literary value.
