Publisher's Summary

In this classic work, Professor George G. M. James methodically shows how the Greeks first borrowed and then stole the knowledge from the Priests of the African (Egyptian) Mystery System. He shows how the most popular philosophers including Thales, Anaximander, Plato, and Socrates were all treated as men bringing a foreign teaching to Greece. A teaching so foreign that they were persecuted for what they taught. He further shows a comparison of the teachings of the Mysteries to what they taught and with the former predating them the Professor’s point is made clear, "In truth there is no such thing as a Greek Philosophy."

Provocative, well researched.

If you could sum up The Stolen Legacy in three words, what would they be?

Logical, thoughtful and revealing.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stolen Legacy?

I was particularly drawn to the appendix where the author presents a snapshot of all the facts, evidence and inferences that define the source of Greek philosophy. It presents a logical if somewhat impassioned justification for the books basis: Greek Philosophy owes it's roots if not entire substance to the Egyptian Mysteries. It has inspired me to do additional studies on this subject.


Which scene was your favorite?

Unlike a novel this is a scholarly work where each "scene" is a revelation based on examination of historical documentation and then outlining the possible steps (where the historical record is blank) that would lead to the next scene. There is no "favorite scene". There is the satisfaction of understanding the facts and like a good forensic detective, developing the most plausible and realistic scenario based on the information available.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The entire book was moving in the sense that it called into question facts that I for one had never before considered questioning. Professor James made a comment to the effect, "that it is utterly unique in the human experience for one man, Aristotle to be proficient in virtually all the sciences and to create a body of work, that by any standard is beyond the capabilities of a single individual in a single life time." This fact alone should prompt each us to pursue a scholarly search to either affirm or disprove the conclusions which have been presented in this volume.


Any additional comments?

A thoroughly enjoyable and educational read. I listened to it as an audio book at first then read the text and took notes for further research. It can be tedious to read or listen to at times because of the authors meticulous attention to detail, but I found it well worth the effort and would recommend this to any one with a scientific mind and who is willing to apply the scientific method. It flies in the face of conventional wisdom and while the author has the stated agenda of elevating the stature of the African, which draws immediate rebuke and caustic responses, I believe this work stands on its own, is valid and deserves wider dessimenation and inspection. I for one will do my part on both accords.

Outstanding, one of my favorites in print

What made the experience of listening to The Stolen Legacy the most enjoyable?

The actual factual history (our story) which supports the hypothesis of the ultimate Jack Move. This is Not intended to be a complement, but a suggest that there's nothing new under the sun should be observed. The accomplishments of the Kemetic (Egyptian) people represents an outstanding civilization that provided gifts to the world , religion, math, science and medicine that exceeds the current civilization in that it was in harmony with nature.
