The Mytho-Empiricism of Gnosticism
Triumph of the Vanquished

S. Giora Shoham

Shlomo Giora Shoham has been awarded the Israel Prize for 2003, for his contribution to the study of criminology. He is a widely published author on crime, deviance, philosophy, religion, psychology and the human personality. He lectures worldwide, and has recently been resident at the universities of Oxford and Harvard, and at the Sorbonne.

 


With a foreword by Giovanni Filoramo, author of
A History of Gnosticism

A learning experience of the first order, encyclopedically rich in its coverage, Shoham puts myth, religion, literature and psychology into an easily understandable analytic perspective. This book traces the influence of Gnosis in European culture.
