The Science of Mind

The Science of Mind written by Ernest Shurtleff Holmes blends the best of Eastern and Western spiritual philosophies, psychology, and science into transformational ideas.

The Science of Mind was published in 1926. A revised version was completed by Holmes and Maude Allison Lathem and published in 1938.

The Science of Mind emphasizes positive thinking, the influence of circumstances through mental processes, recognition of a creative energy source and of natural law, and the use of what Holmes called Spiritual Mind Treatment or Affirmative Prayer.

The Science of Mind is a synthesis of the laws of science, opinions of philosophy, and revelations of religion, applied to human needs and the aspirations of humankind.
