Napoleon Hill[edit]

Hill is frequently referred to as influenced by, part of, and a founder of the New Thought movement. See:

  • Horowitz, M. (2009) Occult America: The Secret History of How Mysticism Shaped Our Nation. Random House Digital, Inc. p 87.
  • Starker, S. (2002) Oracle at the Supermarket: The American Preoccupation With Self-Help Books. Transaction Publishers. p 25.
  • Taylor, E. (1999) Shadow culture: psychology and spirituality in America. Counterpoint. p 216.
  • Juhasz, A.J. (2009) The Logical Meaning of God. Attila's Creative Works LLC. p 59.

With so many citations clearly on the side of inclusion (and I only gathered a few of many, many more) you cannot remove him again. Rather, you can add a footnote showing both sides of inclusion/exclusion, and cite your sources. • Freechildtalk 06:03, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Christian Science[edit]

I see this was removed. I've restored it under "other groups," because it seems odd to leave it out of the template altogether. It's clearly part of the same family and an important part of New Thought's history. Some academic sources:

  • "The Christian Science-Metaphysical Family. This family, known also as "New Thought" in academic literature, stresses the need to understand the functioning of the human mind in order to achieve the healing of all human ailments."
  • "Groups in the metaphysical (Christian Science–New Thought) tradition ... usually claim to have discovered spiritual laws which, if properly understood and applied, transform and improve the lives of ordinary individuals, much as technology has transformed society."
  • "... the New Thought Movement ... combines ideas from [Mary Baker] Eddy and the prominent faith-healer Phileas Quimby."

Expanded collapsible list[edit]

The documentation doesn't finish the last sentence that gives the accepted parameter values for expended. I tried "expanded=Related ideas" and tried "list7name" in the WP:sandbox.

Also I wonder why the sandbox shows {{NewThought}} differently than at Christian Science. Thanks. — CpiralCpiral 21:34, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
