~~from the back cover. Here, for the first time in paperback, is Colin Wilson’s second book, successor to his acclaimed The Outsider. In it he answers the charge that the Outsider is just an intellectual fad, showing instead that he is a powerful symbol of rebellion against materialist society and a product of the lack of spiritual tension, or vision, in all declining civilisations.
In a series of studies ranging from Boehme to Swedenborg and from Bernard Shaw to Wittgenstein he probes deeper into the psychololgy of the Outsider while at the same time establishing the historical and cultureal background. In these examples we see the development of Colin Wilson’s central concern: how can man extend his range of consciousness? – a concern which he has developed constantly over the ensuing twenty-five years and more.
