    In Fouke's Philosophy and Theology in a Burlesque Mode: John Toland and the Way of Paradox presented an analysis of Toland's 'exoteric strategy' of speaking as others speak, but with a different meaning. Ethical injunctions Virtue alone is enough to live happily and brings its own reward. But at times he would write tracts for payment that he did not believe in, and for most of his life he was obliged to hide his true religious beliefs. On balance it seems likely that Toland never set up a specifically pantheist society of the type he describes. The Triumph of Vulgarity.

    It was he who coined the term pantheist. The Universe is divine. Motion is inherent to matter. Spinoza's French school and the supporters of deism were but two sects disputing over the true meaning of his system In Fouke's Philosophy and Theology in a Burlesque Mode: John Toland and the Way of Paradox presented an analysis of Toland's 'exoteric strategy' of speaking as others speak, but with a different meaning. His Pantheisticon, sive formula celebrandae sodalitatis socraticae Pantheisticon, or the Form of Celebrating the Socratic Societyof which he printed a few copies for private circulation only, gave great offence as a sort of liturgic service made up of passages from pagan authors, in imitation of the Church of England liturgy.

    The members met behind closed doors, and sometimes outdoors. Back in England, Toland translated the work of the Renaissance pantheist Giordano Bruno ; edited Oceana, the utopian work by James Harrington ; and after financial reverses worked as a newspaper-man. However, there is no trace of a British Socratic Society. Further Reading Toland's Letters to Serena was republished in After a spell in Oxford he came to London in Also the Original Plan of Christianity explained in the history of the Nazarens

Pantheisticon book

The religion was transformed to atheism, the decency to dissoluteness, and loyalty to rebellion. Toland was a man not of his time; one who advocated principles of virtue in duty, principles that had little place in the England of Influence and legacy Toland was famous for distinguishing exoteric philosophy—what one says publicly about religion—from esoteric philosophy—what one confides to trusted friends.

Letters to Serena [book] Hypatia or the History of a most beautiful, most virtuous, most learned and in every way accomplished lady, who was torn to pieces by the clergy of Alexandria to gratify the pride, emulation and cruelty of the archbishop commonly but undeservedly titled St Cyril The Primitive Constitution of the Christian Church c.

Motion is inherent to matter. Brown, Stuart. Originally used to describe writers whose theological positions were heterodox, the term was applied historically to a diverse group of English philosophers and theologians in the period between and In the last two letters, he founds a metaphysical materialism grounded in a critique of monist substantialism.

The Greek and Indian Pantheism is a vague fanciful doctrine, carrying with it no scientific conviction; it may be true — it looks true — but the proof is wanting. After his Christianity not Mysterious, Toland's "Letters to Serena" constitute his major contribution to philosophy.

There is an infinite number of other worlds similar to the earth we inhabit, circling around their suns which we call the fixed stars. He believed in a boundless universe.

Later works of special importance include Tetradymus wherein can be found Clidophorus, a historical study of the distinction between esoteric and exoteric philosophies. The human mind and soul are properties of the brain, which is a material organ. The Life of John Milton, containing, besides the history of his works, several extraordinary characters of men, of books, sects, parties and opinions.

It was thus as radical politically and philosophically, as it was theologically.

Thereafter Toland became an enthusiastic proponent of Bruno's ideas in Britain and Europe. The Irish Parliament and English House of Commons condemned the work to be burned, and when a second edition bore the name of the year-old Toland, orders were issued for the author's arrest.

In the latter year he wrote that all things were full of God, and quoted with enthusiasm Strabo's assertion Geography, xvi. His merit and originality consist in the systematic exposition and development of that doctrine — in his hands, for the first time, it assumes the aspect of a science.

Nature mysticism may be compatible with pantheism but it may also be compatible with theism and other views. It came from Volume 3 of U. The publication too was secretive: the book was written in Latin so it would be accessible only to the highly educated.
