C. Alan Anderson &
Deb Whitehouse


Drs. Deb Whitehouse and Alan Anderson are a husband-and-wife team of educators, scholars who have studied New Thought history and practiced its teachings for many years. Both of them are currently members of the Executive Board of the International New Thought Alliance (INTA), and Deb is editor of the INTA magazine, New Thought. Both have spoken and written extensively about New Thought, collaborating on an earlier book, New Thought: A Practical American Spirituality (Crossroad, 1995).

Deb holds a doctorate in educational psychology from Northern Illinois University in addition to degrees in music from North western University. Alan's doctorate from Boston University is in philosophy; his doctoral dissertation was titled "Horatio W. Dresser and the Philosophy of New Thought," later published in somewhat enlarged and illustrated form in 1993 by Garland Publishing as Healing Hypotheses. . He was part of a team of editors assisting Ervin Seale in publishing the complete works of the father of New Thought, Phineas Parkhurst Quimby: The Complete Writings (DeVorss). He also holds degrees in law, education, and political science.

Alan was Professor of Philosophy and Religion, Emeritus, in Curry College, Milton, Massachusetts, where he taught full-time 1966-2000, after three years of teaching philosophy and history at Babson Institute, now Babson College. Deb tutors at Curry, and the two of them team-teach a course for Continuing Education at Curry titled "Self Leadership Through Mind Management." Deb developed the course, which adds philosophical background in ethics and metaphysics to the work of Stephen Covey, author of the best-selling book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Covey's work is based largely on American success literature, which is in turn based largely on New Thought principles.

Alan was a pioneer in giving New Thought a presence on the World Wide Web, establishing the New Thought Movement Home Page in 1995. You can visit it at www.websyte.com/alan, where there are links to many other New Thought materials and organizations.

Deb and Alan share a passion for Gilbert and Sullivan, for walks along the ocean, and for skewering sacred cows.
