'H. P. Blavatsky's The Secret Doctrine has given to the science of symbols an impetus unequalled in any other age. Never before has such a mighty grasp blended so many lines of myth; never has such a mighty mind shown a unity of knowledge concerning the cosmic and human processes behind of evolution which lies behind all world mythologies. The Hermetic writers, Proclus and the Neo-Platonists, the middle age Kabbalists, Jacob Boehme and Paracelsus, attempted syncretism's which were limited at most to two or three lines of traditions. H. P. Blavatsky has added the Nordic, the Chinese, the ancient American, and above all the Indian. This text is a study of the eclectic symbolism in The Secret Doctrine.'
