37. Atlantis and the Origin of the Mystery Schools | tracing the backstory of esoteric philosophy
Show Notes

In this episode we continue in our ongoing series of investigations of the ancient institution of the Mystery Schools and its relationship to philosophy. In the previous article/episode of this series, we tracked philosophy's birth out of the Mystery Schools during the Axial Age. In this article, we backtrack from this critical period and look back at the origin of the Mystery Schools themselves, tracking their existence back to the lost antediluvian empire of Atlantis. In the articles that follow, we're going to return to the Axial Ages to take a deeper look at a few lingering threads, and then in future episodes we're going to progress in time toward Francis Bacon and the birth of science.

Thanks for tuning in! - Alex
