For centuries the world has been misled about the original source of the Arts and Sciences; for centuries Socrates, Plato and Aristotle have been falsely idolized as models of intellectual greatness; and for centuries the African continent has been called the Dark Continent, because Europe coveted the honor of transmitting to the world, the Arts and Sciences. It is indeed surprising how, for centuries, the Greeks have been praised by the Western World for intellectual accomplishments which belong without a doubt to the Egyptians or the peoples of North Africa.

Stolen Legacy by George G.M. James refutes the Euro-centric myth that the origin of Western philosophy is Greek. First published in 1954, this book was seminal in leading to a radical reappraisal of a philosophical system long thought to be of European origin. It is an essential work in the syllabus for the study of Western philosophy.

2015 Reprint of 1954 Edition. Full Facsimile of the original edition. Not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. James argued that Egypt was the true source of the Mystery teachings and therefore any claim to such origin by the ancient Greeks is not only dishonest, but must have been based on dishonest motives. "Stolen Legacy" was one of the first scholarly works that attempted to recover the "lost" history of early African civilization.

"Stolen Legacy: The Egyptian Origins of Western Philosophy," by Dr. George G. M. James, is a controversial work first published in 1954. To the consternation of some, James dared to assert that the Greeks were not the authors of Greek philosophy, and that so-called Greek philosophy was in fact based upon the primary ideas and concepts borrowed-without acknowledgement-from the ancient Egyptians. Written during Dr. James tenure at the University of Arkansas, "Stolen Legacy: The Egyptian Origins of Western Philosophy" raises more thought-provoking questions and uncomfortable questions than it answers. Though many may disagree with James' findings, his book confirms the words of Solomon, "there is nothing new under the sun." Truth and wisdom has been in existence since time began. Greek culture learned much from the Egyptians. Alexander the Great and the Ptolemy dynasty were Greek, but they did not disturb the religion or the customs of the Egyptians, and indeed built magnificent new temples for the Egyptian gods. Ptolemy I, perhaps with advice from Demetrius of Phalerum, founded the Museum and Library of Alexandria, a key academic, literary, and scientific center which drew the top Greek scholars. In "Stolen Legacy: The Egyptian Origins of Western Philosophy," James shows how famous Greek philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle were heavily influenced by Egyptian culture, and how many of their teachings were what they had learned from the Egyptians.

In this Illustrated Edition of the book, Dr. James seeks to prove, among others things, that the Ancient Greeks were not the original authors of Greek philosophy, was mainly based on ideas and concepts that were borrowed without acknowledgment, and indeed stolen, from the ancient Egyptians. "Greek philosophy is somewhat of a drama, whose chief actors were Alexander the Great, Aristotle and his successors in the peripatetic school, and the Emperor Justinian. Alexander invaded Egypt and captured the Royal Library at Alexandria and plundered it. Aristotle made a library at Alexandria and plundered books, while his school occupied the building and used it as a research center. Finally, Justinian, the Roman Emperor, abolished the Temples and schools of philosophy, i.e., another name for the Egyptian Mysteries, which the Greeks claimed as their product, and on account of which, they have been falsely praised and honored for centuries by the world, as its greatest philosophers and thinkers. This contribution to civilization was really and truly made by the Egyptians and the African continent, but not by the Greeks and the European continent." This Classic book is a must have for all who seek to learn more about Ancient Cultures from around the World including Moorish, Greek, Egyptian, and Rome. James uncovers the true historical origins of man and how the knowledge and wisdom of the ancients paved the way to establish several systems of learning that is still in use today. - Z. El Bey

Examines Levin's claims that the stage adaptation of Anne Frank's diary rejected a Jewish treatment of the work in favour of a play with a universal message. The text establishes the bias of the opposition to Levin and places the issue in the context of the wider cultural struggle of the 1950s.

Challenging the notion that civilization started in Greece, this uncompromising classic attempts to prove that the true authors of Greek philosophy were not Greeks but Egyptians. The text asserts that the praise and honor blindly given to the Greeks for centuries rightfully belong to the people of Africa, and argues that the theft of this great African legacy led to the erroneous world opinion that the African continent has made no contribution to civilization. Quoting such celebrated Greek scholars as Herodotus, Hippocrates, Aristotle, Thales, and Pythagoras, who admit to the influence of Egyptian studies in their work, this edition sheds new light on traditional philosophical and historical thought. Originally published in 1954, this book features a new introduction.

George Granville Monah James introduced the original, and rather scandalous theory, that the ancient Greeks borrowed their philosophical ideas from the Egyptians. In the book Stolen Legacy, James claims that Aristotle's ideas originated from books that were stolen when Alexander the Great looted the library in Alexandria. James refers to Greek sources such as Herodotus, who described Greece's cultural debt to Egypt. He also mentions prominent Greek philosophers such as Pythagoras and Plato, who are said to have studied in Egypt. For example, he attributes the use of the term "atom", which means an indivisble particle, as having originated from the name of the Egyptian deity Atum, a god who symbolizes completeness and indivisibility. The book further draws from masonic writings to support his claim that Greco-Roman mystical religion originates from the "Egyptian mystical system."
