The degrees of the Lodge of Perfection are often viewed as the heart of the Scottish Rite. In these degrees, Albert Pike explores human relations, responsibilities and moral codes. We learn of how humans should interact with each other, how we should govern ourselves and live within our communities. The Lodge of Perfection provides each Masonic student with a collection of reflective philosophical lessons which can be used to grow as both a Mason and a member of the human family. The text has been somewhat modernized making an easier reading experience. Foreword by Michael R. Poll.
