Periodic Table of the World’s Religious and Philosophical Traditions
The Periodic Table of the World Religious and Philosophical Traditions (PTWRPT) is a new attempt, based on integrative, comprehensive and transpersonal historical methodologies, to codify, categorise and present the entire range of human spiritual, intellectual and scientific discoveries and approaches over the history of our species.Taking the ideas of Mendeleyev, (to group all the atomic elements in systematic order), the PTWRPT does the same with the entirety of religious and philosophical teachings.
It lists all known spiritual and scientific systems of thought, knowledge and belief according to one of 168 separate entries.These in turn are grouped into 15 overall categories, which on the actual Table are grouped as: Green — Primal religions, Red — Buddhism, Light Blue — Christianity, Yellow — Hinduism, Mid green — Islam, Brown — Humanism, Light yellow — Philosophy, Grey — New religious movements, Pink — Chinese faiths, Yellow brown — Sikhism, Peach — Hebrew faiths, Dark green — Shintoism, White — Jainism, Light purple — Persian faiths, Cream — Esoteric traditions. The Table is intended for use in homes, schools, colleges, universities, seminaries, academies, scientific institutions, libraries, research centres, mosques, synagogues, gurdwaras, temples, libraries and wherever people are interested in comparing and analysing the different belief systems of the planet.
The Periodic Table of the World’s Religious and Philosophical Traditions live on-line version is available at www.educationaid.net/pages/ptable_intro.html and can be used as a teaching aid. By gaining access to the online version of the table you are able to use the data which has been some 35 years in compilation. The Table’s layout and contents are the unique creation of Dr Thomas Clough Daffern B.A. (Hons), D.Sc. (Hon) PGCE PhD, an academic expert in comparative global philosophy and religion, who has taught in various universities and schools worldwide, based on over 35 years close research into the world’s intellectual and spiritual history. Teachers may use their log-in password for the benefit of an entire class in live lessons. For home use however, we ask that pupils and students register individually in their own names.
Readers using this website, which details the core data and information concerning each different lineage, will also find it useful to obtain the actual printed Periodic Table of the World’s Religious and Philosophical Traditions (available from Muses Press), which can be displayed on a wall for easy reference for example in religious studies or philosophy department classrooms.
There is also a book available from the Muses Press which accompanies the online version of theTable which also explains the motivations, history and reasons for its creation, as well as giving scientific explanations for the protocols and procedures that were adopted in devising the Table.
In addition, students and scholars may purchase the 20 hour audio course outlining the main sections of the Period Table given as a series of lectures in Wiltshire in 2009, and a 150 hour audio course detailing the nature of Transpersonal History, which is the methodological framework underlining the Periodic Table of the World’s Religious and Philosophical Traditions.
