"Hexagonal Geometry in Art History" - A discovery from 2005. This is an earlier version of material that appears here on the "Art" page.
"Francis Bacon and the Rank-Raglan Mythotype" - 2022. Explores features of the heroic archetype or "monomyth" in the biography of English polymath Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626). I submit this as a new argument for God's existence, a real-life version of the heroic archetype.
"The Esoteric Francis Bacon" - 2022. Posits that Bacon was subject to visionary states under the influence of drugs, about which he wrote in the form of mystical alchemy texts published under a number of pseudonyms. The idea that Bacon took drugs is not controversial, he even recommended a yearly two-week "opiate diet" to restore vitality. This focuses on cannabis or "green lion" (sometimes "green dragon") in alchemy.
The Precious Gem of Hidden Literature: Francis Bacon 1576-1655. Published 2022 by Wipf & Stock. Of course I'd love for people to buy the book, it's not expensive, but the book itself is more important than the money I can extract from it, so it's free here. If you are going to buy it, here's the publisher's link wipfandstock.com/9781666738407/the-precious-gem-of-hidden-literature/
Anti-Machiavel (editor) - Published 2018 by Wipf & Stock. A new edition of the 1602 English translation, the most comprehensive rebuttal to Machiavelli's political philosophy. A tragically neglected book. 75 pages of new material including appendices with parallel passages in Francis Bacon. There's a self-published version on Amazon that I can't get down, I put it up before I finally got a publisher. That version does not have the introduction and appendices. This version, posted below, does. wipfandstock.com/9781532659720/anti-machiavel/
