Encyclopedia Hermetica: A Big History

In this informal lecture series presented by The Modern Hermeticist begun in 2015, Dan Attrell flies through the centuries chronologically to try and provide a wide audience with a ‘big picture’ of Western history. The exoteric portions of the Encyclopedia Hermetica cover major events and trends in politics, art,  religion, science as covered in typical historical works so as to provide listeners with a more traditional  framework. This grand narrative, cobbled together from countless historical sources, serves a dual-function as a vehicle for imparting teachings of a more esoteric  and personal nature: the discussions are punctuated by an honest, no-holds barred commentary that delves off into subjects such as philosophy, psychedelia, the occult, mysticism, and mind control, the history of these subjects, and some opinions about the ways in which people continue to interpret them. This is done to provide listeners not only with a basic chronology of events in the history of Western Esotericism, but also with a veritable Weltanschauung in the spirit of a liberal education.
