Recent and Forthcoming Works
My new book, The Caretakers of the Cosmos, is out in the UK and will soon be released in the US.
According to Nicholas Colloff at his engaging Golgonooza site: “in his most recent book, ‘The Caretakers of the Cosmos: Living Responsibly in an Unfinished World’, [Lachman] explicitly sets out his own views of what it means to be human and why we are here? This being Lachman his views are set out lucidly, engagingly, tentatively and accompanied by a cloud of illustrious witnesses from the Hermetic tradition and the the Kabbalah, to Blake and Goethe through to Berdyaev and Cassirer (amongst many others).” You can see the entire review here.
My publisher Tarcher/Penguin recently purchased the US rights to my book Into the Interior: Discovering Swedenborg (published in the UK by the Swedenborg Society) and is releasing a new American edition in April 2012 as Swedenborg: An Introduction to His Life and Ideas.
Recently I contributed an audio guide to an exhibition on Secret Societies held at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux. Here you can listen to the guide – in German – and find out more about the exhibition. The catalogue for the exhibition, Secret Societies, to which I’ve contributed two essays, is available at amazon.co.uk and amazon.com
My most recent book is The Quest For Hermes Trismegistus From Ancient Egypt to the Modern World published by Floris Books, who also publish the UK editions of my Rudolf Steiner and A Secret History of Consciousness.
Madame Blavatsky: The Mother of Modern Spirituality is due for release in the US in October 2012.
