Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered

Pensée is a series of 10 journals conceived by David Talbott and Stephen Talbott with the first issue coming out in May 1972. Both the publisher, David, and the editor, Stephen, were intrigued by the ideas, work, and impact of Immanuel Velikovsky. They desired to provide an article forum for involved, knowledgeable people to evaluate the whole "Velikvosky affair" about 30 years after Worlds in Collision first broke upon Western civilization like a starburst in 1950.

This series of journals was the first of its kind and was quite successful, covering a very wide range of issues raised by the proposed reconstruction of ancient times. They were foundational, reaching a circulation close to 20,000, and were instrumental in increasing interest and support for planetary catastrophic thinking. The Talbott brothers worked closely with Velikovsky and further published some of his additional articles.

Everybody that wants to be widely and deeply educated should read these issues.
