Ten Basic Principles That Inspire the Work of Temenos by John Carey

£14.99

Product description

In 1980 the poet and scholar Kathleen Raine, together with Keith Critchlow, Brian Keeble and Philip Sherrard, launched Temenos, a journal devoted to the Arts of the Imagination. The journal sought to give space to poets, artists, writers and thinkers who subscribed to the belief that man is firstly a spiritual creature with spiritual needs which have to be nourished if we are to fulfil our potential and be happy.

From these early beginnings the Temenos Academy was launched in 1990 as a teaching organisation dedicated to the same central idea that had inspired the Journal. Scholars and teachers, committed to what is known as 'the perennial philosophy' - the learning of the Imagination - were invited to lecture and hold study groups to teach an ever-growing number of students.

The Academy was originally housed in His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales's Institute of Architecture in Regents' Park. Now it holds its meetings in a variety of venues in London.

This is a good copy which would be classed as Very Good were it not for a crease on the front cover. Other than this defect, the book is in excellent condition.
