Secondary literature – also a delight

What others write about the Theosophical Society:

„This rather nicely sums up, I think several aspects of the Theosophical Society. First, they were truly adept – with a devastatingly deadpan technique – at the invention of new organizational structures (…), and the confetti of serious scholarship (…). Second, they certainly did sell books – today Priyaratna would have been directed to where, indeed, he would find Isis Unveiled robustly alive as a classic occult commodity. Third, they were always willing, in a pinch, and in order to avoid unnecessary specification of discussion of a particular principle, to invoke the problem of „incomprehensibility“.“ (Trevithick 2006: )

But hey… who doesn’t?
