Biography

John Anthony West is a writer, scholar and Pythagorean, born in New York City.  He is the author of The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt, and consulting editor for the Traveler's Key series.  His previous book, Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt is an exhaustive study of the revolutionary Egyptological work of the French mathematician and Orientalist, the late R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz.

In The Case for Astrology, John Anthony West presents compelling new evidence that proves the astrological premise: that correlations exist between events in the sky and on earth, and that correspondences exist between the human personality and the positions of the planets at birth.

Mr. West has published a novel and many short stories; his plays have been produced on stage, television and radio, and he writes articles, essays and criticism for The New York Times Book Review, Conde Nast's Traveler and other general interest and specialized newspapers and magazines in America and abroad.  He won an EMMY Award for his 1993 NBC Special Documentary The Mystery of the Sphinx, hosted by Charlton Heston. 

The ancient Egyptians themselves attributed their wisdom to an earlier age going back 36,000 years. West set out to test the hypothesis that the Sphinx was much older than its conventional date of 2500 BC. His findings provide the first hard evidence that an earlier age of civilization preceded the known development of civilization in the Nile valley.

John Anthony West is today the leading authority and proponent of the 'Symbolist' school of Egyptology, an alternative interpretation of ancient Egyptian culture advanced by the French scholar and philosopher, R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz (1891-1962). In the Symbolist view, Egyptian architecture and art disclose a richer and more universal wisdom than conventional Egyptology has assumed.
Mr. West lectures extensively on Egypt and personally leads several in-depth study tours to Egypt every year.

Bibliography

 

Serpent in the Sky: 
The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt
John Anthony West explains in this richly illustrated book the unity and purpose of ancient Egyptian culture. The Serpent symbolized choice: the lower or the higher path. West brings to life the world of a people for whom higher truth was a living reality and ultimate goal.
The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt
In the book, John Anthony West does more than provide a detailed description of the monuments and temples of ancient Egypt. He takes the reader into the soul and spirit of the ancient Egyptians who built them. The Traveler's Key is indispensable to the serious visitor and interested reader and includes up-to-date practical information on travel and accommodations.
The Case for Astrology
Astrology was an integral part of the Sacred Science of the ancient Egyptians and is today a vital legacy of our ancient origins and wisdom. In The Case for Astrology, John Anthony West presents compelling new evidence that proves the astrological premise: that correlations exist between events in the sky and on earth, and that correspondences exist between the human personality and the positions of the planets at birth. This of all the books by John Anthony West contains perhaps more of his own personal philosopy and world view. It is an essential book for all serious students of Astrology.
The Mystery of the Sphinx (video)
On November 10, 1993, the NBC television network broadcast "The Mystery of the Sphinx," introducing thirty million American viewers to the discovery by John Anthony West and Robert Schoch that the Great Sphinx of Giza might be thousands of years older than its assumed date of 2500 BC. Narrated by Charlton Heston, the documentary provides evidence that the ancient Egyptians possessed scientific knowledge unknown to us and carried on the wisdom tradition of an earlier lost civilization.
