Is there anything our modern industrial society can learn from the story of Atlantis, a legend that has endured for two thousand years? From the dialogues of Plato to the modern age of Atlantology, esteemed occultist John Michael Greer traces the evolution of this controversial story about a great civilization drowned by the sea. See how this fascinating legend was reshaped by modern occultists and pioneers of the "rejected knowledge" movement. Greer also proposes his own revolutionary theory-based on Plato's accounts, human history and geological science-of a civilization doomed by natural disasters at the end of the last Ice Age. As the threat of global warming makes headlines today, Greer poses the ultimate question: is the legend of Atlantis a legacy of the distant past, or a prophecy of our own future? John Michael Greer is the author of more than a dozen books on magical traditions and one of the most original writers in the occult field today. A student of magic and the occult for more than thirty years, his background combines academic study with training and initiation in several occult and Druid orders, including the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. He currently serves as Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America.
