Description:     

"The Master Mason is expected to extend his researches into the hidden mysteries of the Science."
In that regard, James Stevens provides us with a delightful essay build around the classical questions and answers. There are gems of knowledge within the dialogues of the seven chips and we may want to put them into parallel with those of G. Lessing’s Ernest and Falk (1778). Those two works stimulate critical thinking and draw out ideas and underlying presumptions. They remind us of the Socratic Method, a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals, based on asking and answering questions.
The jewels provided consist in a rare expose on the Masonic rituals, their differences and divergences and the various symbols and functions of the Lodge and Officers.
This edition comes with the new sections Biography, Works cited and Supplementary references.
