Hinduism and Conscientious Objection to WarBolton, R. Vol. 9, No. 3. ( Summer, 1975) Hinduism
Mr R Bolton addresses the article by Guenon titled The Symbolism of the Fish with some criticisms of aspects relating to the zodiac that need to be clarified. He argues that because of the actual position of the sun “whatever is referred to a sign in the (traditional) Zodiac must now be referred to the sign immediately before it in order”.
Correspondence on Astrological SymbolismBolton, R. Vol. 3, No. 3. ( Summer, 1969) Misc
Mr. Robert Bolton writes to the editor on the topic of the universality of different religions; he says that the doctrines of different religions can be different without one being superior to another. Despite the fact that different religions can all be respected Mr Bolton does not mean that one can believe or use different doctrines simultaneously. He also discusses his impressions on the difference between theology and metaphysics, with the latter being more universal than the former. Finally, Mr Bolton argues of orthodoxy that “to be joined to a tradition while implicitly denying its total adequacy seems to me a false and unintelligible position, though I have long tried to see how it could be otherwise.”
Correspondence on Man and The Presence Of Evil in Christian and Platonic doctrines Bolton, R. Vol. 3, No. 3. ( Summer, 1969) Christianity
R. Bolton’s letter is in response to Philip Sherrard’s article, "Man and the presence of Evil in Christian and Platonic Doctrine.” Bolton strongly objects to Sherrard’s assertion that there is a conflict between Platonic ideals and Christian philosophy on several subjects, to begin with that there is a conflict between the ideas of emanation and creation. Second, Bolton disputes the claim by Sherrard that Platonism does not admit anything above intellect. Thirdly, Bolton objects to the idea that emanation and creation are equal. Bolton goes on to discuss the “irreversibility" of all relationships between the Infinite and the finite.”
