The author of the article appearing herein, David L. Smith, offers convincing evidence that Emerson was not only a modernist "in his affirmation of the spiritual possibilities inherent in the most unsettling forms of modern life" (to quote from the author's abstract) but also an esotericist reflecting Platonic philosophy and exhibiting many of the criteria of Western esotericism proposed by Antoine Faivre: "a correspondence metaphysic, a view of nature as living or organic, an emphasis on imagination, and a project of transmutation.
Numerous studies of the Fall no doubt exist in Christian orthodox theology; few, however, occur within the confines of Christian theosophy, with recent notable exceptions appearing in Antoine Faivre's analysis of Franz von Baader's (1765-1841) interpretation (Access to Western Esotericism [Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 1994], 201-74, esp. Four books are also reviewed in this issue: Antoine Faivre's Theosophy, Imagination, Tradition, Joseph Ross' recently released Krishnamurti: The Taormina Seclusion1912, Clement Salaman's The Way of Hermes-New Translation of The Corpus Hermeticum and The Definitions of Hermes Trismegistus to Asclepius, and J.S. Gordon's Land of the Fallen Star Gods.

Finally, two book reviews appear herein: Stephan Prothero's The White Buddhist and Antoine Faivre's and Jacob Needleman's Modern Esoteric Spirituality. The second review, that of Professors Faivre's and Needleman's Modern Esoteric Spirituality, is by Professor James Burnell Robinson. His review reflects a grasp of "esoteric spirituality" with his presentation of a lucid and insightful overview of Professor Faivre's analysis of the characteristics of this form of spirituality and of Professor Needleman's more experiential interpretation of it. I am happy to announce the addition of two new Associate Editors of Theosophical History, Antoine Faivre and Jean-Pierre Laurant, both of whom are members of the faculty at the École Pratique des Hautes Études (la Section des Sciences Religieuses) in the Sorbonne (Paris). Antoine Faivre has been called by James Burnell Robinson "...arguably, the leading academic authority on esoteric movements in the world" (TH VI/4: 153). Professor Faivre, the Chair of Esoteric and Mystical Currents in Modern and Contemporary Europe at the École Pratique des Hautes Études, is becoming more widely known in the English-speaking world through a series of translations of his books published from the original French, among which are The Golden Fleece and Alchemy (Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 1993), Access to Western Esotericism (Albany: SUNY Press, 1994), and The Eternal Hermes (Grand Rapids, MI: Phanes Press, 1995). He has also edited (with Jacob Needleman and Karen Voss) Modern Esoteric Spirituality (NY: The Crossroad Publishing Company, 1992), which was reviewed in the last issue of TH by James Burnell Robinson. One essay of note that has yet to be published in English is his definitive "Le courant théosophique (fin XVIe-XXe siècles): essai de pÇriodisation" (Politica Hermetica, No. 7, 1993: 6-41), obligatory reading for anyone who wishes to gain insight into "theosophy. Another overview of "theosophy," however, appears in English in The Encyclopedia of Religion (NY: MacMillan Publishing Company, 1987): 465-69. Professor Faivre is also a director of the Revue Aries (ARIES is the acronym for the Association pour la Recherche et l'Information sur l'Ésotèrisme).
