Part 7: The 1920s Origins of the Triune of Life

September 20, 2023

This TIC talk explores the prolific 1920s era at the Palmer School, which set the stage for the emergence of the triune of life concept. We gain insight into the postgraduate PhC theses on triune prior to Stephenson’s seminal textbook, the impact of B.J. Palmer’s theories, and the conceptual discourse amongst early philosophers influencing Stephenson. Tracing this lineage provides context for appreciating Stephenson’s major contributions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Thousands of chiropractors trained at Palmer in the 1920s, transforming the profession
  • Early PhC writings preceded Stephenson
  • B.J. Palmer’s textbooks, research, and instrumentation expanded philosophical concepts
  • Discourse and debates among early philosophers advanced triune theories
  • Stephenson built on this foundation to crystallize the triune of life in his 1927 textbook
