The Mechanism of Conscious Life The author dedicated his life to the fruitful work that he accomplished in behalf of human betterment. He created a science, Logosophy, and instituted a method which is unique of its kind. He was born in Buenos Aires on August 11, 1901. His spirit reacted against the routine procedures of the academic disciplines and their techniques for gaining knowledge which were then deemed to be the basis for culture (for they bear no relation to the individual's inner serf), and, after carrying out profound investigations which were guided by an original conception, he discovered a lode of transcendent cognitions. With these cognitions whose constructive virtue is unquestionable, he tested at the outset of his work a method which was soon to be praised for its efficacy. In 1930 he founded the "School of Logosophy" in the city of Cordoba, Argentina, where he spent years teaching the cognitions that make up this new type of knowledge. Later on he moved to the city of Rosario. The activities that he developed there during his seven years' residence contributed to strengthening the bases of his work, by then fully consolidated. In 1937 he settled in Buenos Aires where he continued his work until his death on April 4, 1963. The logosophical movement, which developed under the guidance of González Pecotche, gained momentum year after year in parallel with the pedagogical work he carried out directly with his disciples. Important cultural centers were soon established for the practice and diffusion of the new science, centers which placed within the individual's reach an extraordinarily valid and effective method of attaining self-knowledge and of penetrating the secrets of human and universal life. The Educational Institute which was founded in 1930 and now functions under the name of "Logosophical Foundation", has expanded its activities to the most significant cultural areas of the world. After nearly seven decades of incessant activity, the Logosophical Foundation is today in a position to document its work with the solid results obtained with the teachings of Logosophy.
