The Occult: A History by Colin Wilson

The Occult will shake the foundation of your being like an earthquake shakes the ground beneath your feet, thereby leading you to be who you really are--or rather capable of becoming--if you can gather the strength to endure the shock of truth and find the courage within to let it set you free from your...

Kantian Reflections on Science, Metaphysics, and the Future of Time: Situating Kant’s Spatio-Temporal Modalities of Being and Thought in Contemporary Philosophy and Neuroscience
