The Recurrence of New Age Typology

Title:The Recurrence of New Age Typology
Author:Green M.
Publication:Cultural Values / Blackwell Publishing
Enumeration:vol. 3, no. 2, pp. 126-139 / April 1999
Abstract:This essay examines the recurrence of New Age typologies in different ages and different cultures. The archetype is defined as the revolutionary idealist who is intellectual, declassé, an experimenter and a seeker after truth. The essay then proceeds to compare and contrast key intellectual and spiritual figures to establish the extent to which they conform to the archetype: Percy Shelley and Otto Gross, Mahatma Gandhi and St. Francis of Assisi. It concludes with an examination of the career and ideas of John Middleton Murry and argues the case for him to be seen as a New Age archetype - the New Age man of letters.
