Chapter Summary

In recent years, the academic study of Western esotericism has been developing rapidly from a somewhat obscure specialty pursued by a few dedicated researchers into a burgeoning professional field of scholarly activity and international organization. The present book is the fruit, one of many, of this growing branch of knowledge. That there are connections between Western esotericism and the domains of eros and sexuality has, of course, been recognized before, not least by practitioners, and the various contributions to the present volume provide abundant illustration of that fundamental and indubitable fact. The current debate about precise definitions and demarcations of the professional field of Western esotericism is complex and technical. The essayists, in this volume, ask and advance their own specific questions and proffer their own answers.

Keywords: international organization; scholarly activity; sexuality; Western esotericism
