Arnold's father is philosopher and author, Count Hermann Keyserling., and the great grandson of Chancellor Bismark. Arnold is the original "new age thinker" in Europe who first introduced both the Human Potential movement and the Native American shamans to Europe in the 1970's and 1980's. A full Professor of Spiritual Philosophy at the Acaemy of Art, Vienna, Austria since the 1960s, in the 1980's Arnold also served as President of the European Humanistic Psychology Association.

Keyserling was one of Europe's great late Twentieth Century philosophers, well known throughout Europe and Asia as an extraordinary public speaker and teacher. A student of George Gurdjieff , Ramana Maharishi, and Josef Matthias Hauer, he is also the first to mathematically calculate the exact frequencies of the Chakras and the inventor of a new musical scale tuned to them, now called PrimaSounds. Professor Keyserling spoke many languages and taught in German, English, French and Italian. He lectured in most countries of the world and was well known in Austria and other European countries.

Keyserling was raised at his father's institute, the School of Wisdom, where he was exposed to universal ways of thinking from early childhood. Thinkers and writers such as psychologist, Carl Jung; translator of the I Ching and sinologist, Richard Wilhelm; German poet, Hermann Hesse; and Indian Nobel Lauret poet, Rabindranath Tagore met at The School of Wisdom in Darmstadt, Germany in the 1920's and 30's until it was closed by the Nazis, and the Keyserling family became official enemies of the Nazi state. After the war, Russian philosopher George Gurdjieff, and twelve tone musician Joseph Hauer were Arnold Keyserling's primary teachers.

Keyserling has been a Professor of Religious Philosophy at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria for over 30 years. Prior to moving to Vienna, he and his wife, Wilhelmine Keyserling, lived and traveled throughout the world in a quest for knowledge, including India where they lived for five years. He is the author of over 50 books in German on psychology, philosophy, science, religion, poetry and music, a few of which have recently been translated into English as part of the School of Wisdom publication project. Keyserling has also co-authored a book in English with Ralph entitled Chance and Choice: a compendium of ancient and modern wisdom revealing the meaning and significance of the myth of science. The full text of this book is available online at its own domain: Keyserling's work focused on the systematic ordering of numbers, language, and sensory data - the realms of sound, color, matter, and their connection to man, the microcosm, and macrocosm. This interrelationship is summarized by a geometrical figure called The Wheel, the archetypal image of his comprehensive system of thought. For more information on his philosophy also see: LAWS OF COHERENCE.

Professor Keyserling developed an organized and systematic planetary philosophy which incorporates all of the world's great traditions, East and West, and teaches students to think for themselves to find personal meaning and fulfillment. His work heralds a new type of reconnection to the Universe, which includes both science and the ultimate values of all religions, and can bring self determination, freedom, peace and security to all Mankind.
