Uncertain Places: Essays on Occult & Outsider Experiences

by Mitch Horowitz Author

In this far-reaching and deeply-delving collection of essays, author Mitch Horowitz explores the worlds of occultism, mysticism, and metaphysics, taking on debunkers and offering new perspectives on the history of these fields of study. Horowitz shows the myriad ways in which popular culture, politics, and art take their cues from occultism, and even how the study of quantum physics and neuroplasticity draw their inspiration from metaphysical and magical sources. Covering an enormous range of material, Uncertain Places prepares readers to continue their own investigations into the occult by pointing them towards starting points and demonstrating the connections between contemporary spiritual and magical traditions and those of antiquity. A must-read for occultists, mystics, and witches everywhere.
