Wouter J. Hanegraaff’s “The Theosophical Imagination” is released in advance form

We’re excited to release Wouter J. Hanegraaff’s research article “The Theosophical Imagination.” In this article, Hanegraaff examines modern Theosophy and its practice of clairvoyance. He not only explains what clairvoyance meant for Theosophists around the turn of the 20th century, but also how it worked and where the practice came from. Clarvoyant imagination, Hanegraaff writes, can be traced to a forgotten nineteenth-century author, Joseph Rodes Buchanan, whose theory and practice of “psychometry” is fundamental to the clairvoyant claims of all major Theosophists. The article is available now in advance form in Volume 5 (2017).
