Spirituality and the Occult argues against the widely held view that occult spiritualities are marginal to Western culture. Showing that the esoteric tradition is unfairly neglected in Western culture and that much of what we take to be 'modern' derives at least in part from this tradition, it casts a fresh, intriguing and persuasive perspective on intellectual and cultural history in the West. Brian Gibbons identifies the influence and continued presence of esoteric mystical movements in disciplines such as:
* medicine
* science
* philosophy
* Freudian and Jungian psychology
* radical political movements
* imaginative literature.

About the Author:

Brian Gibbons is a lecturer in literature and cultural history at Liverpool John Moores University. His main research interests are occult spiritualities andd seventeenth-century English Radicalism. He is the author of Gender in Mystical and Occult Thought: Behmenism and its Development in England (1998).

Review:

"This study is extraordinarily learned...accurate in its account of the occult tradition in western civilization, and it adduces substantial evidence to support its claim that occultism is a significant presence in many aspects of the modern world."
-John Mebane, University of Alabama
"This is a truly excellent book. The scholarship is sound and the subject timely, and the style is clear and approachable. The material is well-chosen, well-presented and the argument is convincing."
-Juliette Wood
