Overview

Swedenborg accomplished more than most people would in ten lifetimes. He was fluent in nine languages, excelled in music, was a member of Parliament, wrote 150 books covering seventeen different sciences, and invented an undersea boat, glider, and hearing-aid trumpet for the deaf. As an astronomer he put forth the nebular theory regarding planetary formation. As a physiologist he discovered the function of certain ductless glands and several areas of the brain. He wrote the first in-depth books on metallurgy and developed an elaborate theory of the origin of all things �but at age 57 dropped all scientific pursuits to search for the human soul. His spiritual discoveries attracted a large following that ultimately became a religion. Find out how one man could accomplish all this and more.
