5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly Crowley, October 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aleister Crowley and Western Esotericism (Paperback)
This is a very fine collection of Essays by studious individuals who have examined and studied the diverse published works of Mr. Crowley. As a retired professor of Philosophy who has always recommended that students read original sources and not secondary sources and summaries, I say now that the more you have read Aleister Crowley in the original, the more you will enjoy and become engaged with these Essays. It also cannot be denied that even if your study of Crowley is casual, let us say, some of these Essays might very well give you the kick-start you need to discover a base that unites Eastern Esotericism and Western pragmatism. This is not a Book for flakey new-agers.

this is indeed an excellent compilation. i'm glad there is a serious study of his writings done. from oxford university press no less. just the forward alone by wouter hanegraaff on western esotericism is worth the book cost. and all the notes and references at the end of each study is valuable resource for the serious students. i'm only 120 pages into this, but so far have been very pleased with the knowledge and what the authors have to offer.
