Theosophy, Imagination, Tradition. Studies in Western Esotericism.

Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 2000. First Edition. Softcover. Octavo. xxxvi + 270pp, bibliography and index. From the publisher: "A collection of essays which not only presents "the current state of research in esotericism, but it also explores three main aspects of the field from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. .... 'Theosophy, Imagination, Tradition' traces the history of the theosophical current, its continuity and shifts, against the background of social and cultural events. The book also covers the Paracelsian course, the romantic Philosophies of Nature and the Occultist movement; provides glimpses into the notions and practices of the so-called active and creative imagination, and questions how they serve as a bridge into certain kinds of mystical experience. It also examines the place that the notion of tradition occupies in some major exponents of western esotericism." Covers lightly rubbed, a few light marks to page edges, "non returnable" stamped on upper edge of text block, upper corners lightly bumped. Text bright and clean - overall a tight VG+ copy.
