Summer course: Visions of the Occult

In July 2020 our center presents the summer course Visions of the occult: Introduction to Western Esotericism

Western esotericism has long been neglected by academic research as a subject unworthy of serious consideration. However, it has been and still is one of the most significant components of Western culture. The fact that it has been often marginalized, or even persecuted at times, does not mean that it has been historically irrelevant, quite the contrary. Many major authors and movements in literature, the arts, philosophy, and science have been influenced or inspired by it.
