Winter course: Visions of the Occult – Introduction to Western Esotericism

In January 2021 the HHP centre will be part of the winter school programme organised by the Graduate School of Social Science. This winter school is organised instead of the summer school which had to be cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

**The programme has reached its maximum number of participants.**
Applicants will be put on a waiting list.

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.
