Many congratulations to Adam Kendall who has been elected and installed as President of the Philalethes Society, which dates from1 October 1928. The Greek word filalêthês was used by writers such as Aristotle and Plutarch and means ‘a lover of truth’. The word came into Masonic circles through Robert Samber (1682–1745), whose pseudonym was Eugenius Philalethes. A Rite of Philaléthes was founded in Paris in 1772 devoted to the study of esotericism. The Philalethes Society took its name from this organisation. Fellowship is limited to 40, like the French Academy, but in emulation of QC & QCCC, the Philalethes Society also has a Correspondence Circle.
