A vital work in the history of occultism from the notorious provocateur Josephin Peladan.

How to Become a Mage is the first English translation of the enormously influential occultist Josephin Peladan. This book is a fascinating display of nineteeth-century French thought, sharing audacious ideas on overcoming the pitfalls of status-quo society while perfecting and purifying one’s own soul in preparation for transcendence and sacred transformation. Peladan was committed to the belief that the best way to enter into communion with the divine was through magic and the arts. He played a key role in fin-de-siecle culture, expounding upon the spiritual weight of physical, intellectual, familial, and creative pursuits while guiding young seekers toward a radical reassessment of the values and activities of contemporary life.
