Welcome to Concrescent Scholars!
- Relatable Content:
Pathways in Modern Western Magic launches a new imprint in the Concrescent family of books. This imprint specializes in peer-reviewed works of scholarship in the fields of Esotericism, Pagan religion and culture, Magic, and the Occult.
Concrescent Scholars present their views from within and without the Academy. Here will be heard the Voice of the Academic, and also the Voice of the Practitioner, the native of the sometimes alien, sometimes intimate, spaces of the Esoteric. Paraphrasing the Buddhologist Stephan Beyer, we are mindful that Scholars of the Esoteric do not deal with Esotericism so much as they deal with Esotericists. Real lives are behind these words and each one has a voice to contribute.
These young scholarly fields need a forum in which to mature. This is one such forum where the voices of both academic and the practitioner will be heard in new collections, monographs, and translations that further the discipline.
We take advantage of the recent revolution in publishing technology and economics to bring forth works that, previously, might only have been circulated privately, or been prohibitively expensive.
Concrescent Scholars is dedicated to bringing together all who work, learn, and live in the Esoteric that they may flourish materially, intellectually, and spiritually.
Now, we are growing the future together.
