In Nietzsche's Footsteps 2nd Ed.

by Jonathan R. Cohen 
248 pages | 5.5 x 8.5 | ISBN 978-1-926716-48-0 | Softcover

A thrilling, vicarious journey through Friedrich Nietzsche’s favorite haunts, “In Nietzsche’s Footsteps” walks us through an earnest discussion and pragmatic reflection on elements of Nietzsche’s biography and philosophical discoveries throughout the philosopher’s journeys.

“In Nietzsche’s Footsteps” is a thrilling, vicarious journey through Nietzsche’s favorite haunts: Nice, France; Turin, Italy; and Sils Maria, Switzerland. Within the author’s personal reflection lies a pragmatic rumination on the many aspects of Nietzsche’s philosophy that arise throughout the voyage. What does it mean to remain an individual while nurturing the bonds that make life worth living, chiefly those we have with family? Along the way, we explore this quandary as well as the foundational elements of Nietzsche’s philosophy, considering the ways in which our own culture may or may not have followed in his ever-reverberating footsteps.

In a book that will appeal to academics and enthusiasts alike, Nietzsche’s complex philosophical ideas are accessibly framed as they arise in the day-to-day, so that we may tackle the question of what it is to lead a meaningful life, both as individuals and alongside those we love.

The Confessions of Aleister Crowley

686 pages | 234mm x 156mm | 50+ photos | ISBN 978-1-926716-65-7

One of the most famous books on the occult ever written, this is a record of Crowley's journey into strange regions of consciousness: his initiation into magic his world-wide travels and mistresses, his experiments with sex and drugs, and the philosophy of his famous Book of the Law.

Aleister Crowley, self-styled "the Beast", founder of his own spiritual orders, was already a legend the world over when he penned his biography. Known as a novelist, poet, magician, mountaineer, chessmaster, guru, he was a famous voluptuary and accomplished mystic.

Born in England in 1875, son of a brewer and evangelizing Plymouth Brother, Crowley rejected Victorian life and mores and pursued a life of rebellion where he sought to push the limits of experience and human knowledge. Soul searching mysticism led to sexual excess, debauchery, drug use and daring physical and mental exploits whether on the most dangerous of mountain cliffs or in the most profound psychological experimentation.

A master of Eastern and Western philosophy he travelled Egypt, China, Mexico, Thailand and more... Living in London, Paris, New York, he collected disciples, mistresses and lovers of both sexes, while pouring out unparallelled manuscripts on occultism, mysticism and the practice of the spiritual sciences. His prolific literary career and adventurous feats never far behind, he also produced a number of novels, volumes of verse to fill a library while breaking world records in mountaineering and climbing. Via his spiritual writings and experiments, he has left humanity with a legacy to decipher for ages to come.
