Synopsis:

Nomenclature or "professional jargon" is important in every field of study for it defines the vocabulary, concepts and context, which may be general or specific. Allan Kardec went to great lengths to establish a critical and precise definition for the concepts later presented to us in the first book of the Spiritist Codification, The Spirits’ Book. As we begin our studies of The Spirits’ Book at the Tuesday Study Group, we will look at the spiritist nomenclature so we may derive the most of its teachings.

The first of a series of lectures, this talk will focus on the concepts such as fluids, principles, soul, spirit, perispirit, extraphysical and the physical realms, and the physical body.

About the lecturer:

Júlio Padovan, a Brazilian national, is a professor at the Department of Chemistry at York College–CUNY and a full-time researcher at the Rockefeller University in New York City. He holds several academic degrees and is a lecturer for both the physical sciences and the Spiritist Doctrine. Introduced to Spiritism at the age of fifteen, Júlio dedicates his time to translating spiritist books from Portuguese and French into English, and he is particularly interested in studying and explaining the solid logical foundation upon which spiritist concepts are built as well as in creating a tighter association among those very same concepts.
