Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Tower of Babel, 1563

My research involves an ongoing philological engagement with the collected works of German integral philosopher, Jean Gebser, and French Hermetic philosopher, René Schwaller de Lubicz. I have also translated material by Henry Corbin (on Islamic and Persian alchemy), Hans Thomas Hakl (on the Italian esotericist, Julius Evola), and Louis Massignon (on the Cult of Fatima in Shi'ite Islam). Please contact me directly if you are interested in hiring me as a translator. Otherwise, enjoy the provided selections. More translations will be uploaded as time permits.

“The Symbology of Hermeticism in the Work of Julius Evola”, by Hans Thomas Hakl, in Peter Forshaw, ed., Lux in Tenebris: The Visual and the Symbolic in Western Esotericism (Leiden: Brill, 2017). Translated from the German.
