The Serpent: theoretical premises for Samaelism
The course focuses on the concept of serpentiformity in the ancient world and in particular on Hesiod's classical literature. The theoretical premises provided are useful for having an iconographic vision of Samaelism as a cult based on the symbol of the Serpent.
Philosophy of the Dionysian and the Apollonian in Samaelism
The course, starting from the foundations of Greek philosophy, aims to provide the knowledge necessary to understand the foundations of F. Nietzsche's aesthetic and theoretical thought and its influences on Samaelite iconography.
Speculative Cabala and Samaelite Metaphysics
From the analysis of medieval kabbalistic thought to contemporary qliphotic theories, the course provides a complete overview of the subject and its fundamental axioms to arrive at an understanding of the Samaelite spherical system.
Monotheistic studies in ethics and society
What are the innovations of monotheism in the history of religions? Starting from the concept of Mosaic distinction, the course analyzes the ethical and social differences between this vision of religiosity and the previous polytheism.
Farmakeia: the art of manipulating the Farmacon
The course is based on the analysis of the theoretical and practical premises of the Farmakeia, the Samaelite initiatory practice which intervenes and modifies the Farmacon to allow the initiate to rediscover the harmony between microcosm and macrocosm.
