The Eye in the Triangle: An Interpretation of Aleister Crowleyby Israel Regardie, Robert Anton Wilson, Christopher S. Hyatt
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Aleister Crowley, the greatest Magus of the twentieth century, redefined the very basis of the Western Esoteric Tradition. His incalculably vast influence reaches through all modern occultism. Whether acknowledged or not, he is the father of the modern arts of ceremonial magick, western tantra, tarot and wicca. His devotees ascribe even greater significance to his life, regarding him as the Prophet of the Modern Age.
In 1928, at the age of 53, Crowley was living in Paris when Israel Regardie, a 21 year old disciple, nervously presented himself to become Crowley’s personal secretary. Thus began the most significant relationship of Regardie’s life. Although they were to have a bitter parting some time later, this experience caused Regardie to devote his next five decades to spreading Crowley’s message and tending the flame of his memory—at a time when that was an unpopular, unrewarding and lonely task.
The Eye in the Triangle provides an accurate, humorous and brilliantly insightful look into the man whom many still regard as “The Wickedest Man in the World.” Fasten your seat belts and get ready to enter the magical world of Aleister Crowley as seen through the eyes of Israel Regardie.

Meet the Author
Israel Regardie (1907-1985) was considered by many to be the last living Adept of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. At an early age, Regardie worked as Aleister Crowley's personal secretary. In addition to his extensive writings, Regardie practiced as a chiropractor and as a neo-Reichian therapist. He taught psychiatry at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and contributed articles to many psychology magazines.
Robert Anton Wilson is the coauthor (with the late Robert Shea), of the underground classic The Illuminatus! Trilogy which won the 1986 Prometheus Hall of Fame Award. His other writings include Schrodinger's Cat Trilogy, called "the most scientific of all science fiction novels" by New Scientist, and many nonfiction works of Futurist psychology and guerilla ontology. Wilson, who sees himself as a Futurist, author, and stand-up comic, regularly gives seminars at Esalan and other New Age centers. Wilson has made both a comedy record (Secrets of Power), and a punk rock record (The Chocolate Biscuit Conspiracy), and his play, Wilhelm Reich in Hell, has been performed throughout the world. His novel Illuminatus! was adapted as a 10-hour science fiction rock epic and performed under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Great Britain's National Theatre, where Wilson appeared in a special cameo role. He is also a former editor at Playboy magazine.
