Colin Wilson's 'Occult Trilogy'

Colin Wilson's 'Occult Trilogy'

a guide for students

An essential guide to Colin Wilson's major writings on the occult.


CATEGORIZED IN

Stanley's writing is fitting tribute to the writer and thinker Colin Wilson who, as one expert, George C. Poulos, predicts: “Looking back..., will [Colin Wilson] be acknowledged as the philosopher to have most influenced events in the 21st century.”

Following Colin Wilson's death in December 2013 will his work reach a wider readership and Poulos' prediction come true?

The ‘Occult Trilogy’ is the collective label applied to Colin Wilson’s three major works on the occult: The Occult (1971); Mysteries: an Investigation into the Occult, the Paranormal and the Supernatural (1978) and Beyond the Occult (1988). They amounted to a monumental 1600 pages and have spawned many other lesser works.

Colin Stanley's thorough and fascinating overview gives the reader a firm grounding in this enormously important subject, and lays a solid foundation for its future development. Gary Lachman, author of: The Secret History of Consciousnes, Jung the Mystic, Turn Off Your Mind and Madame Blavatsky
