The current podcast episode
Episode #9, released on August 17, 2017 is dedicated to the memory of British writer and author of the “Occult Trilogy”, Colin Wilson. To talk about him and discuss topics on his thoughts and life we speak to his bibliographer Colin Stanley, who has also organised a Colin Wilson conference this past spring and overlooks the transfer of Wilson’s manuscripts and library to Nottingham University.
Also I present you a short interview with renowned author Gary Lachman, who has recently published an extensive book about Colin Wilson, entitled “Beyond the Robot”.

A few words about this page
Thoth-Hermes has been a plan I have been cherishing for a while: a website treating different subjects from the world of the Western Esoteric Tradition … At the centre of the activity there is a podcast, presenting mainly high quality interviews with important authors, thinkers and and experts, but also other aspects of the field.
I am European. Over the centuries Europe has given birth to most of the currents of what we call the Western Tradition. Over the last century or so there has been a shift towards North America, where many of the leading experts are now located. Also what we find on the internet comes often out of North America and the Anglo-Saxon world. Thoth-Hermes will try to give a strong European accent to our field, but is of course at any time open to esotericists from the whole planet.
I am an Artist. This is why I have also a special interest in artists who are working with influences and impressions from the Esoteric realm in their art, be it performing arts, music or visual art. The podcast and the website will therefore regularly feature artists and their work.
Work in Progress
This webpage is quite an ambitious project. It is supposed to become a meeting point for everyone interested in subjects around the Western (and maybe not only Western) Esoteric Tradition.
Therefore we will develop this page slowly, step by step. One after the other subjects and menu points planned for the near and not so near future will be added. I therefore hope that you will consider this site as “Work in Progress”, come back often and see what is new, and how you could contribute.
