Un cadou recent de la fostul meu prof de română, Istoria filosofiei oculte a lui Sarane Alexandrian a venit taman cînd căutam literatură de specialitate pe tema sefiroturilor din Pendulul lui Foucault. Așa se explică de ce am început s-o citesc, ca să zic așa, peste rînd, dar nu-mi pare rău deloc, subiectul, foarte interesant în sine, este tratat excelent!

The book is very enjoyable, and I have found it cleared some of ongoing confusions with regards to certain occult philosophies. The topics are actually quite easy to grasp, even if you only have a basic understanding of them. It is well structured, full of references fur further studies, and it ends with the author's own conclusions regarding the future development of occult thinking.

I highly recommend it.

I like Alexadrian, but here he lacks the romanticized imprint he usually gives subjects
