Aufklärung und Esoterik
Rezeption - Integration - Konfrontation
[Enlightenment and Esotericism. Reception – Integration – Confrontation]
Ed. by Neugebauer-Wölk, Monika
Aims and Scope
The Age of Enlightenment continues the debate with traditional elements from Neo-Platonism and Hermetism, Pythagoreanism, magic, alchemy and Kabbalah which today are subsumed under the heading of early modern age esotericism. The reactions range from the critical or historicising to emphatic acceptance and integration. At the same time, however, the discourse of the age also gives rise to polemic confrontations with the newly emerging esoteric formations. The papers in this volume explore these tense constellations with their progression in the 18th century.
