I can't find a good link to this book, and personally don't care to link to amazon, so I'll drop ISBN and standard reference instead. This is a comprehensive study tracing the evolution of claims to knowledge since the Enlightenment, and it has the capacity to change peoples' lives and fundamental beliefs - people with an uninformed esotericism, itself an unwitting reaction to the grand complications of spirituality posed by modernity, are going to either flee or revise their internal reasoning reading this.
