Présentation de l'éditeur

Atlantis has held a perennial place in the collective imagination of humanity from ancient Greece onward. Many of the great minds of the occult and esoteric world wrote at length on their theories of Atlantis--about its high culture, its possible location, its ultimate demise, and their predictions of a return to Atlantean enlightenment or the downfall of modern society. Beginning with a review of the rationalist writings on Atlantis--those that use geographic and geologic data to validate their theories--renowned scholar Joscelyn Godwin then analyzes and compares writings on Atlantis from many of the great occultists and esotericists of the 19th and 20th centuries, including Fabre d’Olivet, G. I. Gurdjieff, Guido von List, Julius Evola, Edgar Cayce, Dion Fortune, and René Guénon, whose writings often stem from deeper, metaphysical sources, such as sacred texts, prophecy, or paranormal communication. Seeking to unravel and explain the histories and interpretations of Atlantis and its kindred myths of Lemuria and Mu, the author shows how these different views go hand-in-hand with the concept of cyclical history, such as the Vedic system of the four Yugas, the Mayan calendar with its 2012 end-date, the theosophical system of root races, and the precession of the equinoxes. Venturing broader and deeper than any other book on Atlantis, this study also covers reincarnation, human evolution or devolution, the origins of race, and catastrophe theory.

The Beginning viz. the End & Vice Versa 11 janvier 2011
Par Mark Newbold - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A worthy and superb successor (perhaps prequel?) to Godwin's earlier work 'Arktos: The Polar Myth...'. This study of the Atlantis mythos, its prehistoric implications for humanity, and the cycles of time are explored in depth, humor, and sound research. Godwin is one of the most credible esoteric scholars writing today. His analysis of primary, secondary and even fringe sources of Atlantology are explored in this most readable study. Not since Walter Kafton-Minkel's 'Subterranean Worlds' have similar topics been covered with such penache. If you are seeking the final word on the topic of Atlantis as a symbolic motif in literature, history and belief systems this erudite work is not to be missed. Highly recommended.

A Study of the Students of Atlantis 27 janvier 2011
Par Peter C. Patton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a remarkable, scholarly, and well-written book. The subject matter is engaging and the scholarship excellent, but the genius of the book is its telling of the story in two (almost) discrete segments: the rational students of the Atlantis Legend as distinct from its more occult students. While the occult 'pre-historians' draw the author into the related legends of Mu, Lemuria, and Hyperborea (which he has covered in a previous book Arktos), his focus remains on the story of Atlantis and its devotees through the past two and a half millennia. The book summarizes materials published and unpublished that would be almost impossible for the non-scholar/library denizen to ever find. While his scholarship is impeccable, his criticism is very gentle, even redemptive. One of my favorite comments is his favorable comparison of James Churchward's fantastic, self-illustrated Mu series with Tolkein's self-illustrated novels of Middle-Earth. This is absolutely the nicest thing one could ever say about Churchward's work!

An accessible, authoritative, and impartial introduction to Atlantology and super-ancient world-cycles 22 mai 2012
Par Avery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is an exhaustive history of Atlantis in the Western tradition, which takes us from rationalist-materialist attempts to find Atlantis, to completely spiritual and immaterial uses of the word "Atlantis" to give ineffable concepts a name. Anything any European has ever written about super-ancient civilizations receives at least a mention here, making the book encyclopedic in length, but still quite readable. Even for the seasoned researcher it is worth the price simply for Godwin's summaries of rare documents and obscure European debates. For initiates like myself, this book is a real gift, a gateway to further reading and a compendium of difficult works I would never have the time to read myself.

Godwin's unbiased tone is a great credit to the book, making it an engaging and inviting, even if it prevents debunkers from giggling at the silly mystics. Godwin deals with a lot of unusual ideas, including spiritual and biological races, but remains sympathetic even to the most unusual statements. Rather than ridiculing his subjects he impartially reports their most important ideas. Future writers on this subject, like myself, could learn much from his example. The only concept Godwin comes out firmly against is racial supremacism, which seems like a pretty fair judgment to me.

The one problem with the book is that it has no stated purpose or conclusion other than the dedication of the archivist. The final paragraph of the book is weak and basically meaningless: "It may be interesting, in conclusion, to list some of the other recurrent themes", followed by a long table of concepts shared by these very different writers. Godwin could have enlightened us with his own theory, or a little more metaphysical rigor. But that's hardly enough of a complaint to subtract a star.

accomplished discussion of "occult Atlantology" 7 mars 2011
Par inner exile - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Starting with an overview of various 'rationalist' theories aimed at locating the submerged continent/island somewhere on the globe (ch. 1), the author goes on to present multifarious threads of Western esotericism, dating from the second half of the 18th century to the late 1900s. Their advocates make an exhaustive laundry list of names and ideas: French thinkers (d'Olivet, d'Alveydre, Schuré, Papus, Le Cour, Phaure); Theosophists (Blavatsky, Sinnet, Scott-Elliot, Leadbeater, Steiner's 'Anthroposophy', Bailey, Besant); Germans - Ariosophists (Lanz-Liebenfels, von List, Wieland, Wirth, Wiligut, Peryt Shou); 'traditionalists' Guénon and Evola; Britons (D. Fortune, Margaret Brown, Col. Fawcett, Randall-Stevens, Foster Forbes, Lewis Spence, le Poer Trench); 'independents' like de Bourbourg, le Plongeon, Sidney Raleigh, the Churchward bros., certain Rosicrucians, Gurdjieff.

Recurring themes include: variations on root races; human devolution from a supposed Golden Age (for instance, those "sodomite hobgoblins" in Lanz-Liebenfels's 'Theozoology', p. 120); Hyperborea; Shambhala - Agartha; Lemuria/Mu; axial tilt or polar wanderings; floods/cataclysms; higher/light beings projecting themselves to the material realm; utopias; channeling; reincarnation; ESP; unfathomable time spans; Akashic records; gods/angels; so on and so forth -- the usual staple for the New Age crowd. It's left to the reader to decide whether these ideas are to be interpreted literally, or viewed rather as allegories/fantasies about 'ideal worlds' that reveal more about the particular time they were conceived in by overactive imagination, perhaps in several cases driven by an agenda, than actual pre-history. Another issue to contemplate may be the extent cryptocracy has been responsible for the proliferation of the memes under consideration (cf. Michael Tsarion's output). At any rate, you can bet Golden Age is not around the corner.

The last two chapters (pp. 298-356) on the cycle of four ages/yugas (Guénon, Georgel, Daniélou) and the precession of the equinoxes may lack "the entertainment value of lost lands and bizarre visions" (p. 357). The extensive endnote section amounts merely to bibliographical references. For those unfamiliar with the controversial characters, their manipulative antics and background to outlandish claims associated with Theosophy and its offshoots, Peter Washington's Madame Blavatsky's Baboon: A History of the Mystics, Mediums, and Misfits Who Brought Spiritualism to Ameri ca (1993) provides a fascinating read. For some mysterious reason, this title has not found its way to Godwin's bibliography (pp. 404-22).

Atlantis and the Cycles of Time

By Joscelyn Godwin

Given the mounting evidence of ancient advanced civilizations, we would do well to remember what brought their downfall. Whether it's of Lemuria, Mu, or Atlantis, the story comes through loud and clear that entering into a technologically advanced civilization has its dangers. Drawing from the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff, Edgar Cayce, and others, Joscelyn Godwin lays out some compelling evidence that we may be entering a time when we need to pay close attention and reevaluate our ancient history in a new light, considering time is cyclic, not linear.
