Recycled Lives

A History of Reincarnation in Blavatsky's Theosophy

Julie Chajes

Oxford Studies in Western Esotericism

  • The first academic study devoted to Madame Blavatsky, a central yet surprisingly understudied figure in the history of Western esotericism
  • Draws together such unexpected bedfellows as nineteenth-century Platonism, Orientalism, and theories from the life sciences, revealing unexpected intersections
  • Approaches manifold topics in nineteenth-century culture and history through the consideration of a single doctrine
  • Straddles multiple fields, bringing together insights drawn from various subfields of intellectual and cultural history, South Asian studies, literary studies, and Western esotericism
