Das „Buch der 24 Philosophen“ ist einer der geheimnisvollsten und wirkungsmächtigsten philosophischen Texte des Mittelalters. Angeblich geht das Buch auf Hermes Trismegistos zurück. Doch wahrscheinlich stammt es aus dem 12. Jahrhundert. Auf die Frage „Was ist Gott?“ geben vierundzwanzig philosophische Meister eine Antwort. Die 24 Definitionen (z. B. „Gott ist eine unendliche Sphäre, deren Mitte überall und deren Umkreis nirgends ist“) haben das philosophische und spekulative Denken durch viele Jahrhunderte bis in unsere Zeit angeregt. Kurt Flasch hat diesen Klassiker erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt und in diesem Band kommentiert herausgeben.

A faint echo of the past, a memory crossing the mists of time, was Bridget's first clue of a life she once lived. The first step of the journey to understand the most pondered enigma of all time, life. Bridget's purpose is to find that spiritual talisman sought by people of all ages, the Philosopher's Stone or Holy Grail. Dependent on her success is her own salvation and that of the world. Using the accumulated wisdom of five millennia of human thought, together with 21st-century science, Bridget must learn the true nature of herself, life, and that vast being known by scientists as the Cosmos and the religious as deity, reconciling the fundamental paradoxes of life and death, good and evil, science and God. She undertook the quest before, as an Iron Age priestess. Now, history is repeating itself. The world again descends into chaos and Bridget must walk The Path once more.

Lange vor unserer Zeitrechnung gab es bereits eine andere, technisch fortschrittliche Kultur. Zu diesem Schluß kommt Graham Hancock nach dem eingehenden Studium von Karten aus dem 16. Jahrhundert, die zum Teil vermutlich auf noch älterenExemplaren basieren und auf denen der Küstenverlauf der seit Jahrtausenden mit einer dicken Eisschicht bedeckten Antarktis genau eingezeichnet ist.Wie kamen die damaligen Kartographen zu ihren Kenntnissen über eine Landmasse, die sich erstheutzutage mit den modernsten Geräten erforschen läßt? Ist es möglich, daß durch eine Verschiebung der Erdkruste Landmassen unter Wasser gesetzt wurden und damit eine hochentwickelte Zivilisation vernichtet wurde?Graham Hancock machte sichauf den Weg, diesen Fragen und ungeklärten Rätseln nachzuspüren, um überall auf der Welt Beweise zu finden, die seine Theorie stützen.

The figure of the alchemical Mercurius features ubiquitously and radically in Jung’s later works, but despite this, there has been little research concerning Mercurius in Jungian studies to date. In this book, Mathew Mather explores the figure of the alchemical Mercurius and contextualises and clarifies its significance in Jung’s life and works. Placing the alchemical Mercurius as a central concern reveals a Jungian interpretation in which the grail legend, alchemy and precessional astrology, as three thematic threads, converge. In such a treatment, Jung’s belief in the dawning of a new platonic month emerges as a central consideration and an esoteric perspective on Jung’s life and works is brought more fully to light, constructing a life-myth interpretation. The book is comprised of three parts: Aurea Catena: locating the figure of the alchemical Mercurius within the Western esoteric tradition Daimonic Encounter: the relevance of this figure in Jung’s personal life Magnum Opus: Jung’s portrayal of this figure in key texts such as Synchronicity, Aion, Mysterium Coniunctionis; and Emma Jung and von Franz’s The Grail Legend. The Alchemical Mercurius is a unique contribution to analytical psychology, substantially revealing ‘esoteric Jung’ and providing valuable perspectives on the theme of his myth for our times. The book will appeal to researchers and academics in the field of analytical psychology as well as postgraduate students.

Matthew Reilley: »Mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch ist Jurassic Park, und das hat mich inspiriert.« Reilly schreibt Action-Thriller mit fantastischen Elementen. Dazu Wikipedia: »Reilly ist bekannt für seinen Schreibstil, der sich, wie kaum ein anderer zuvor, auf Actionszenen im Stil von Hollywood konzentriert und dadurch Dramatik und die Entwicklung der Charaktere erst als zweite Priorität behandelt. Seine Kritiker verurteilen dies und verweisen darauf, dass er Bücher schreibt, die wie Filme zu lesen sind oder gar an die Beschreibung eines Action-Videospiels erinnern. Seine Fans sind der Meinung, dass dies der Grund ist, der seine Bücher so einzigartig und aufregend macht.«

Wild Religion is a wild ride through recent South African history from the advent of democracy in 1994 to the euphoria of the football World Cup in 2010. In the context of South Africa’s political journey and religious diversity, David Chidester explores African indigenous religious heritage with a difference. As the spiritual dimension of an African Renaissance, indigenous religion has been recovered in South Africa as a national resource. Wild Religion analyzes indigenous rituals of purification on Robben Island, rituals of healing and reconciliation at the new national shrine, Freedom Park, and rituals of animal sacrifice at the World Cup. Not always in the national interest, indigenous religion also appears in the wild religious creativity of prison gangs, the global spirituality of neo-shamans, the ceremonial display of Zulu virgins, the ancient Egyptian theosophy in South Africa’s Parliament, and the new traditionalism of South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma. Arguing that the sacred is produced through the religious work of intensive interpretation, formal ritualization, and intense contestation, Chidester develops innovative insights for understanding the meaning and power of religion in a changing society. For anyone interested in religion, Wild Religion uncovers surprising dynamics of sacred space, violence, fundamentalism, heritage, media, sex, sovereignty, and the political economy of the sacred.

From Chapter 5: “By a quirk of fate,” says Darcie Conner Johnston, the eruption [of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD] caught Pompeii at a time of great spiritual change. As a gateway south and east to Greece and Egypt and the Eurasian landmass beyond, the city was heir to a panoply of faiths. A host of foreign gods had begun to usurp the positions of the venerable Olympian deities and the imperial Roman pantheon. Christians were likely to have been here as well, though the evidence of their presence is sketchy. (Page 71 of Pompeii: The Vanished City) Besides the evidence that has already been presented more remains to demonstrate that once again the accepted historical point of view is incorrect. For example.... This second volume of Building Bridges of Time, Places and People presents the overwhelming evidence that some of the most prominent leaders of the New Testament Church left the lands of Judea and Galilee when war between Rome and the Jews seemed certain, and they settled in Pompeii and Herculaneum. These leaders included Simon Peter, Paul, Luke, and John Mark, the author of The Gospel of Mark. They were accompanied by converts such as Cornelius the centurion, who was the first Gentile to be baptized, and by the mother of Christ. This volume also investigates the town of Sepphoris in Galilee and makes a compelling case for the claim that the Messiah of the New Testament grew up there rather than in Nazareth, his identity hidden until he began his ministry at the age of 30.
