An alternative exploration of the human race's history by Eugen Georg (German, b. 1890) centered on the assessment of the significance of Atlantis. New theories of history, geology, and biology are developed in the first half, advancing many reasons for belief in an Atlantean civilization of surpassing splendor and duration. Georg examines the legacies of that culture to be found in the parallelism of art, religion, mythology, etc., of prehistoric man scattered all over the globe. He weighs his findings in the balance of modern Western science and the more occult disciplines of the East. In the second half of the book he challenges the conventional philosophies of European science and rationality and concludes with outlines the next steps forward of the human race.
