Ideas for 20 November 2011

From Ideas, 11:06 am on 20 November 2011

Ideas takes a look at the philosophy and practice of theosophy: an unusual hybrid of Western and Eastern thought, which has had adherents in New Zealand - including a former prime minister and an attorney general - since the earliest years of the movement's history. Chris Laidlaw and Jeremy Rose talk to Sushma and Simon Webber of the Wellington branch of the Theosophical Society; professor Peter Lineham; and June Vallyon a theosophical society member from Tauranga with a keen interest in the movement's history.
