With a title like H.P.B. Teaches, the reader may wonder: 'teaches what'? HPB herself gives the answer: 'metaphysics, psychology, philosophy, ancient religions, zoology, natural sciences'. One might add occult symbolism, spiritual evolution, guidance on moral and social issues, after death states, cycles and human destiny. Aside from the major books she is famous for - Isis Unveiled (1877), The Secret Doctrine (1888), The Key to Theosophy and The Voice of Silence (1889) - it is estimated that in a brief span of seventeen years, from 1874 to 1891, Mme. Blavatsky wrote close to one thousand articles, essays, and letters to journals, which in many cases focus within the space of a few pages on the topics listed above.

For the first time in one volume a representative selection of articles by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 - 1891), co-founder of the Theosophical Society, is available. The forty articles in this book cover every facet of HPB's writings in English, including one of her semi-fictional stories.

From page 21:

" Many thousand years ago the wise King Solomon declared that 'There is nothing new under the Sun', and the words of this very wise man ought to be repeated till the farthest ends of time. There is not a science, nor a modern discovery in any secretion of it, but was known to the Cabalists thousands of years since. This will appear a bold and ridiculous assertion, I know: and one apparently unconfirmed by any authority. But I will answer that where truth stares one in the face, there can be no other authority than one's senses. "
