Reflections on the Work of Colin Wilson

When the archive of the English philosopher and polymath Colin Wilson (1931-2013) was officially opened at the University of Nottingham, UK, in the summer of 2011, it was agreed among those present that a conference should be held there to discuss his work. In July 2016, the First International Colin Wilson Conference was staged with the Proceedings being published a year later. The success of that conference inevitably meant that a second was arranged and held two years later in July 2018.This volume—which will be of interest to scholars and fans of Wilson’s work, in additionstudents of philosophy and consciousness studies—contains the transcripts of the papers presented on July 6, 2018: day one of that second conference. Experts, scholars and fans, from around the globe, gathered to hear and present papers on a variety of Wilson-related topics ranging from Existentialism to the Occult; from Robert Musil to classical music; and from Transpersonal Psychology to Transcendental Evolution.
