Law of the New Thought: A Study of Fundamental Principles and Their Application is study of new thought, or the oldest school of thought that teaches spiritual and psychic truth concerning the planes of the mind, telepathy, the celestial and clairvoyant. In it, Atkinson instructs on the definition of New Thought, the nature of thought in general, the law of attraction, the nature and planes of mind and body, the soul, and the absolute-God and the Universe. He shows how students of New Thought can apply its principles to their everyday lives, while students of philosophy and psychology will find his theories an interesting read. American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932) was editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books under numerous pseudonyms, including Yogi, some of which are likely still unkwn today.
