Munich: Theion Publishing, 2015. Limited to 900 copies only. A FINE PREMIUM CLOTH COPY with embossed vignettes on front and rear panels, headbands, and Smythe-sewn. Klages was a driving force in a notorious Cosmic Circle of German mystics. Masterfully expounding his vision of daemonic Life in disciplines as diverse as philosophy, poetry, metaphysics, psychology and graphology, he influenced many important contemporaries such as Hermann Hesse, Walter Benjamin and the Frankfurt School, C.G. Jung, Martin Heidegger and others. The work of esoteric teachers such as Lama Anagarika Govinda, Michael Bertiaux and David Beth has been deeply inspired by Klages' theories. Misinterpreted, vilified and slandered, this great heretic and ‘high priest of the irrational’ remains virtually unknown in the English speaking world although his work may have never been more relevant. 208 pages printed on archival papers with eight grey-scale photographic reproductions. Tall octavo. (Item ID: T-CG)
