    The Epistemology of the "Great Invisibles": A Surrealist Myth and Its Analogues in Modern Esoteric Imagination2020In: Aries: Journal for the Study of Western Esotericism, ISSN 1567-9896, E-ISSN 1570-0593, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 207-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The central collective myth of surrealism, Les grands transparents, was designed by Andre Breton in 1947 as a means for imagining a desirable society through effecting a vitalizing sense of the unknown and a "decentering of man". As a contribution to the recent re-examination of surrealism in view of theoretical developments in the field of Western esotericism, this article argues that Breton utilizes his mythic narrative to articulate a transformative knowledge, a surreality, that in certain ways correspond to the concepts of gnosis and clairvoyance in esoteric discourse. To substantiate this, similar mythic narratives about great imperceptible entities in texts of Anthroposophy (Rudolf Steiner) and Rosicrucianism (Lectorium Rosicrucianum) are examined. A comparativist model for describing popular approaches (or mythemes) to ineffable experience is applied. An underlying "gnostic" approach of considering such experiences as incomplete and as being co-created is discerned, highlighting each actor's endeavours to validate imaginative perception.
