Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the epigonic disposition of esoteric tradition. The esotericism tradition is erratic, fragmentary and represents old and new friction. Esoteric tradition flows, further radicalized, in a high catastrophic model of history. Contrary to the mythical cycle, esoteric tradition of the contingency of history is entrusted to necessary downright. Tradition is therefore not only the erosion of history, but also the dialectics of exposed modernization. Within the tradition model of esotericism it is necessary, on closer inspection, to clarify the thesis of the delay. Concepts and techniques of tradition play a subordinate role in nature-related paradigms of the esotericism. The chapter discusses the theology of history and Gnosis that represents the concept of tradition as well as the reflection on the terms and techniques of the Kabbalah tradition. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: catastrophic model of history; esoteric tradition; Kabbalah tradition; nature-related paradigms
