Joseph B. Majdalani (JBM)
This book is originally a lecture delivered to the founders of the “Society of Friends of the White Knowledge”, on the occasion of the inauguration of the first center of “Esoteric Studies in Lebanon and the Arab World”. It first gives a definition of the Esoterique, then it covers its origin, history, aims, programs, methods and how it could be benefited from. It also discusses the difference between the Esoterique and other esoteric schools, including metaphysics and parapsychology. It ends with a discussion on the Esoterique as a universal field of knowledge, and its future as a science of man in his entirety. All this, with the aim of developing his awareness of self-evolution and the unfoldment of his consciousness at all levels. For, man is the aim, always and forevermore.
