Crisi delle ideologie, crisi dei partiti, individualismo sfrenato... Questo è l’ambiente – ben noto – in cui ci muoviamo: una società liquida, dove non sempre è facile trovare una stella polare (anche se è facile trovare tante stelle e stellette). Di questa società troviamo qui i volti più familiari: le maschere della politica, le ossessioni mediatiche di visibilità che tutti (o quasi) sembriamo condividere, la vita simbiotica coi nostri telefonini, la mala educazione. E naturalmente molto altro, che Umberto Eco ha raccontato regolarmente nelle sue Bustine di Minerva. È una società, la società liquida, in cui il non senso sembra talora prendere il sopravvento sulla razionalità, con irripetibili effetti comici certo, ma con conseguenze non propriamente rassicuranti. Confusione, sconnessione, profluvi di parole, spesso troppo tangenti ai luoghi comuni. “Pape Satàn, pape Satàn aleppe”, diceva Dante nell’Inferno (VII, 1), tra meraviglia, dolore, ira, minaccia, e forse ironia.

An ancient vampire born in the Carpathian Mountains journeys to Renaissance Florence in this novel by a Bram Stoker Award winner. In Paris during the reign of Louis XV, Le Comte de Saint-Germain was known as a wealthy, worldly, charismatic aristocrat, envied and desired by many but fully known to none. In fact, he was a vampire, born in the Carpathian Mountains in 2119 BCE, turned in his late thirties, and destined to roam the world forever, watching and participating in the drama of human civilization. Now, in Renaissance Italy, he will witness the collapse of the artistic and literary life in Florence after the death of Lorenzo the Magnificent, followed by the rise of the fanatical Girolamo Savonarola. From a World Fantasy Award winner, The Palace is a different kind of vampire novel—rich, atmospheric, and full of the sweep of history.

Just as formal religion appears to dwindle to a minority interest, 'New Age' spirituality gathers increasing momentum and and baffles us with its popular appeal. What is more, it has appropriated Jung as one of its spiritual leaders. In his own trenchant style, David Tacey offers a theoretical and philosophical account of the New Age phenomenon and the archetypal imperatives that have brought it about. He also investigates the popular claim that Jung is a prophet or mystic, and argues that critics have been only too willing to concur with what the New Age has made of him, conspiring to turn Jung into a figure of ridicule. Jung and the New Age, redresses the balance, while offering a wide-ranging discussion about the state of consciousness in the New Age culture, and the future of spirituality versus formal religion.
