The Science of Christian Economy, and other prison writings, by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., 1991, 506 pp, paperback, $15.00.

The volume is dedicated, as LaRouche says in his Preface, to giving “remedial assistance in the matter of how to think.” These ground-breaking works lay the basis for creating a global leadership which bases itself, as does Mr. LaRouche, on the Socratic method as Schiller defines that in his work The Legislation of Lycurgus and Solon. “Without the reemergence of that leadership,” Mr. LaRouche asserts, our imperiled civilization will not survive this century's waning years.

Includes major works by Lyndon LaRouche, written from prison between 1989 and 1991:
In Defense of Common Sense; Project A -- LaRouche Discusses His Solution to the "Riddle of the Ages": The Parmenides Paradox of Plato; and The Science of Christian Economy. An extensive Appendix includes discussion of concepts LaRouche references throughout the works, including: I. Conical versus Cylindrical Action; II. The Maximum-Minimum Principle; III. The Golden Section; IV. Formal Deductive Systems; V. How Newton Parodied Kepler's Discovery; VI. The Art of Forming Hypotheses: Kepler's "Harmony of the World "; VII. Transfinite ordering; VIII. Non-algebraic Curves and Negative Curvature; IXX. The Dirichlet Principle; X. Scientific Tuning Middle C=256 Hz; XI. Euler's Fallacies on the Subject of Infinite Divisibility and Leibniz's Monads; XII "Anthropomorphic Science "; XIII. On the Subject of Christian Civilization; XIV. Physics and Natural Law.

Toward a New Council of Florence: "On the Peace of Faith" and other Works by Nicolaus of Cusa, translated and with an introduction by William F. Wertz, Jr., published by the Schiller Institute, 1993, 577 pp, paperback, $15.00

What is unique about this volume is first, that it contains translations of twelve works of Cusanus previously unavailable to an English-speaking readership; second, that it contains new translations of three other important works of Cusanus and of the prologues to a fourth; and finally, that it makes all of these translations available in one inexpensive paperback volume.

Published in 1993, this is a compendium of translations by FIDELIO Editor and Institute President William Wertz of the works of the great 15th-century Roman Catholic Cardinal Nicholas of Cusa, who, through his work and writings, contributed more than anyone else to the launching of the European Golden Renaissance. The title of the book, Toward a New Council of Florence, expresses the Institute's purpose in publishing it: to spark a new Renaissance today, based on the philosophy of Cusanus. The book includes 14 works of Cusanus most of which were previously unavailable in English translation, as well as four new translations of some of his most important philosophical writings.

Cold Fusion: Challange to U.S. Science Policy by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. Schiller Institute, Inc. Science Policy Memo, Aug. 1992, 173 pages, paperbound, Price: $20.00.
LaRouche's science policy memorandum is a unique proposal which involves recastinhg the whole of modern science, as it is understood by professional practitioners and academics. It is a passionate call for a scientific renaissance which would revive the Platonic tradition of science. LaRouche develops the case that there is a connection between mathematical physics and the pronicples of classical musical composition; this emerges fromthe source of creativity within the indivudual,whether he or she be a scientist or an artist. Thus, not only is cold fusion a most promising window on new energy resources, but the simple cold fusion-developed apparatus is a most promising window onnew energy resources, but also threatens the hegemony of the whole of the Aristotelian establishment who now run the science mafia.

Treason in America: From Aaron Burr To Averell Harriman By Anton Chaitkin  

Did you know that:

  • Aaron Burr was not the romantic rebel of modern popular fiction, but a spy for the British and the Swiss opponents of the American Revolution?
  • The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States in 1801-1813 was a Swiss nobleman sent here to direct a foreign takeover of the U.S. financial system?
  • The traditional "First Families" of Boston made their fortunes exclusively in such criminal activities as drug-pushing, in collaboration with foreign powers at war against the United States?

That's just the beginning of the story of the treacherous Fifth Column subverting the United States, exposed in this book.

This expanded second edition documents in the words of the perpetrators themselves, their continuing campaign to eliminate the American Republic. The story is now carried into the 20th century, naming the names of those who are responsible for the near-collapse of America's moral authority as a republican nation and of her influence as a world power today.

The Economics of the Noosphere Why Lyndon LaRouche is the World's Most Successful Forecaster of the Past Four Decades. by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. EIR, 2001. Price $20.00
Available in PDF format only

The time has come when all economists and political thinkers who want to remain relevant to unfolding world realities, will now wish to go much more deeply into the work of Lyndon LaRouche than simply his now-vindicated economic forecasts as such. They will wish to acquaint themselves with, for example, the scientific concepts of biogeochemist Vladimir Vernadsky—the initiator of the idea of the biosphere—whose concept of the "noösphere" has been used and enhanced by LaRouche.

Economists and political leaders in Russia have been intensively studying LaRouche's work in this area.Isn't it time that the leaders of the United States do the same?

A Manual on the Rudiments of Tuning and Registration, Volume I, Introduction and Human Singing Voice
$50.00 for DVD  (includes Video)

At the Berlin Wall, and in Freedom movements throughout the world, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony was chosen as the "theme song" of the revolution for human dignity, because Beethoven's work is the highest expression of Classical beauty. Now, for the first time, a Schiller Institute team of musicains and scientists, headed by statesman and philosopher Lyndon H. Larouche, Jr., presents a manual to teach the universal principles which underlie the creation of great works of Classical musical art.

Book I focusses on the principles of natural beauty, which any work of art must satisfy, in order to be beautiful. First and foremost is the bel canto vocalization of polyphony, sung at the "natural" or "scientific" tuning, which sets middle C at approximately 256 cycles per second. Copious muscial examples are drawn from the Classical musical literature, to show how the natural registration of each species of singing voice, along with natural tuning, is the composer's indispensible "raw material" for the rigorous creation of poeticc ironies without which no work of art can rightly be called "Classsical."

"This Manual is an indispensible contribution to the true history of music, and a guide to the interpretation of music, particularly regarding the tone production of singers and string players alike...I fully endorse this book, and congratulate Lyndon LaRouche on his initiative."
-----Norbert Brainin, Founder and first violinist, Amadeus Quartet

"...without any doubt an excellent initiative. It is particularly important to raise the question of tuning in connection with bel canto technique, since today's high tuning misplaces all register shifts, and makes it very difficult for a singer to have the sound float above the breath... What is true for the voice, is also true for instruments."
-----Carlo Bergonzi, Tenor
