The Philosophy of Gerald Heard

Highlights of His Writings 1924-1958

by Rev. Edmund A. Opitz

During the past 34 years, Gerald Heard has averaged a book a year. There are 34 books to his credit in the fields of history, anthropology, philosophy, religion, and literature; including six novels, an allegory, and two collections of short stories.
