The Spiritual Fallacy, though packed with arcane facts, is unique in revealing how one the greatest metaphysicians of our age interprets the phenomena, real or alleged, of spiritualism. The doctrinal expositions that accompany his astonishing account offer extraordinarily prescient insight into many deviations and psychological afflictions of the modern mind, and will be a valuable to psychological practitioners and spiritual counselors as to historians of esoteric history. It also offers a profound corrective to the many brands of New Age 'therapy' that all too unwittingly invoke many of the same elements whose nefarious origins Guenon so clearly described many years ago.

Secular Spirituality

Reincarnation and Spiritism in Nineteenth-century France

Author: Lynn L. Sharp

Secular Spirituality challenges the traditional dichotomy between Enlightenment reason and religion. It follows French romantic socialists' and spiritists' search for a new spirituality based on reincarnation as a path to progress for individuals and society. Leaders like Allan Kardec argued for social reform; spiritist groups strove for equality; and women mediums challenged gender roles. Lynn L. Sharp looks closely at what it meant to practice spiritism, analyszing the movement's social and political critique and explaining the popularity of the new belief. She explores points of convergence and conflict in the interplay between spiritism and science, spiritism and psychology, and spiritism and the Catholic church to argue that the nineteenth century was not as "disenchanted" as has been thought. Secular Spirituality successfully places spiritism within a larger cultural conversation, going beyond the leaders of the movement to look at the way spiritism functioned for its followers.
