What happens to us when we die? Are heaven and hell real? If so, what are they like? Heaven and Hell contains the answers to these questions as seen by Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772). This new translation of Swedenborg's most popular work paints a detailed picture of life in the spiritual realms. A Swedish Enlightenment scientist of extraordinary accomplishment, Swedenborg underwent a spiritual crisis that led to an unparalleled series of paranormal experiences. He spent his last twenty-seven years in almost daily experience of heaven and hell, recording his observations and conversations, many of which are reported in Heaven and Hell. This sustained and detailed description of the nonphysical realms has left its impression on the minds of many great thinkers, including Goethe, Blake, Coleridge, Emerson, Borges, and Milosz. This deluxe edition contains an introduction by religious historian Bernhard Lang setting the volume in the context of its time. The New Century Edition of the Works of Emanuel Swedenborg is a modern-language, scholarly translation of Swedenborg's theological works. The series' easy-to-read style retains the dignity, variety, clarity, and gender-inclusive language of Swedenborg's original Latin, bringing his thought to life. Introductions and annotations by eminent, international scholars place Swedenborg's writings in their historical context and illuminate obscure references within the text, enabling readers to understand and trace Swedenborg's influence as never before.… (mere)

    The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature af Steven Pinker (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: Swedenborg was once in charge of all the mines in Sweden. But consider Steven Pinker’s take on the Bible:


    The longest-standing right-wing opposition to the sciences of human nature comes from the religious sectors of the coalition, especially Christian fundamentalism. Anyone who doesn’t believe in evolution is certainly not going to believe in the evolution of the mind, and anyone who believes in an immaterial soul is certainly not going to believe that thought and feeling consist of information processing in the tissues of the brain.

    The religious opposition to evolution is fueled by several moral fears. Most obviously, the fact of evolution challenges the literal truth of the creation story in the Bible and thus the authority that religion draws from it. As one creationist minister put it, “If the Bible gets it wrong in biology, then why should I trust the Bible when it talks about morality and salvation?”

    But the opposition to evolution goes beyond a desire to defend biblical literalism. Modern religious people may not believe in the literal truth of every miracle narrated in the Bible, but they do believe that humans were designed in God’s image and placed on earth for a larger purpose—namely, to live a moral life by following God’s commandments. If humans are accidental products of the mutation and selection of chemical replicators, they worry, morality would have no foundation and we would be left mindlessly obeying biological urges. One creationist, testifying to this danger in front of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, cited the lyrics of a rock song: “You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals / So let’s do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel” After the 1999 lethal rampage by two teenagers at Columbine High School in Colorado, Tom Delay, the Republican Majority Whip in the House of Representatives, said that such violence is inevitable as long as “our school systems teach children that they are nothing but glorified apes, evolutionized out of some primordial soup of mud.

Testo interessante, per le sue influenze su arte e cultura, dell'illuminista svedese che, all'età di cinquantasette anni, iniziò il suo dialogo con l'aldilà e si trasformò in visionario mistico. ( )

DEL CIELO Y DEL INFIERNO

.Swedenborg es un ser que ha experimentado y
atravesado todos los estados de una vida psiquica
de las más intensas y completas....
Paul Valéry

De los ültimos tres siglos, los dos grandes relatos
visionarios más valorados y que mayor influencia harn
ejercido en nuestra cultura son, sin duda, El matrimonio
del Cielo y del Iufierno (1790) de William Blake y Del Cielo
y del Infierno (1758) del sueco Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-
1772). Swedenborg dedicó la primera parte de su vida
a la investigación cientifica, destacando como ingeniero
e inventor de artilugios mecánicos. A partir de 1745 una
visión cambiaria totalmente el rumbo de su vida y de su
obra, orientándola hacia un plano puramente mistico.
Despuès de este hecho, y a lo largo de casi 30 años, tiene
continuas y claras visiones, recogidas en este libro, que le
hacen recorrer los diferentes cielos e infiernos del otro
mundo y conversar con los muertos, los demonios y los
ángeles, que para él no representan -como afirman las
ortodoxias religiosas- un sistema de premios y castigos,
sino una visión metafisica de los diferentes estados
evolutivos de cada espiritu en la cadena del Ser.
La influencia de Swedenborg es enorme: Balzac,
Baudelaire, Nerval, los simbolistas, Borges, Valéry o
Henri Corbin fueron algunos de sus más profundos
admiradores. Esta primera traducción al español se ha
realizado a partir de la edición definitiva de la Fundación
Swedenborg, publicada recientemente.

If you haven't read any of Swedenborg's cannon of work, this is a good place to start. Like all of Swedenborg's work it is incredibly detailed in its description of the Spiritual world. ( )
