Philosophies at Revelore

Books that open up the future...

Every story blooms within ecosystems of words. Cultures are just that: cultures. They form ecologies. If we see text as living, then we can see we live in – to borrow a word from author Antonio Lopez – media ecosystems.

Word ecologies are realities in flux, negotiated by the reality of its textual biome. Words construct the world. They are magical in their potencies, so that the correct passage can open up the future.

This is what we’re interested in at Revelore: books that open up the future, that take challenging directions and seek to re-contextualize the present for new possibilities.

Philosophies at Revelore look to help open the future with new ways of thinking, perceiving, and imagining the world. Books that re-contextualize the present. That bring in magic, consciousness, and “planetary” thinking into manifestos on art and aesthetic, critical theory and mysticism. Modes of thought that embrace liminality and seek out latent, but emerging planetary mythologies. Philosophies also revel in lore.

We have our roots in the Human Potential movement of the 1970s, drawing from the revival of esoteric practices and scholarship, the integral philosophy of Sri Aurobindo, and the futurist oriented thinking on “planetary culture” of the Lindisfarne Association and the Whole Earth Catalogue. We are a hybridization of what came before and what is yet to come: a consciousness culture of the Anthropocene, the era of climate change.

Recognizing that we are a unique constellation of mystics, consciousness scholars, artists, philosophers, esotericists, and activists, living and writing in the present, Revelore’s Curator of Philosophies seeks bring forth novel combinations of thinking and enacting “planetary culture” – an intellectual, literary community – which has more recently been described as “transformational” or “visionary culture.” We believe activity we can do is to establish a network of publishing and writing – a media ecosystem – to allow maximum exchange and synergy between who we feel are the most exciting writers in this line up thinking.

The books we publish aim to be inspiring, intellectually and aesthetically, and most of all generativefurther instances of planetary thinking in a time that needs a consciousness culture that is already leaping into the future, lit up and electrified by the magical re-working and re-mixing of ideas for tomorrow.

We’re looking for manifestos on aesthetics, unions of critical thought with visionary and spiritual scholarship, and collective, rhizomatic, anthologies that help to build a consciousness culture that is not merely a counter-culture, but more like the living root system of magic, art, and intellectual mysticism for the future human being.

FORTHCOMING TITLES

NuraLogicals:

In conjunction with Nura Learning, an educational project co-founded by Jeremy Johnson and dedicated to “deep-dive” classes on consciousness, culture, and planetary thinking, Revelore is publishing a series of supplemental, zine-sized texts that crystallize course materials into helpful, iterative readings.

These are books are intended to accompany the online courses, or serve as curated information that students can take with them after the class and pass along to their local communities. The inspiration behind NuraLogicals is to move the consciousness learning community from the virtual to actual.

 

Seeing Through the World: Jean Gebser and Integral Consciousness
by Jeremy Johnson
ISBN: 9781947544154/ October 2018

In this volume, Jeremy Johnson reintroduces the central concepts of Jean Gebser’s integral philosophy, The Ever-Present Origin, to contemporary readers. Functioning as both an aid to newcomers grappling with the difficult insights on the structures of consciousness and the spiritual import of the text, and as a response to these same insights in the contemporary era where the crisis of consciousness has only intensified, Seeing Through the World hopes to address the urgent need to cognize the past while leaning in and listening to the future.
