CYPRIANA: OLD WORLD
Al Cummins, Jesse Hathaway Diaz,
Jenn Zahrt, PhD, eds

RUBEDO, ‘red, reddening’, is the ultimate stage of the alchemical process; the culminating chromatic shift that marks the visible realisation of primordial flawlessness. Just as traditional texts, from ancient Egyptian papyri to Latin manuscripts, employed rubrics (red lettering) to signify important transitions, so too does rubedo mark the point of critical transformation in which the eternal is made tangible. Rubedo Press is consecrated to works that unfold in this spirit; works that crystallise the invisible into vivid realities; works that act as a leaven—raising the black depths of the earth into living fruits; embracing danger and dissolution as paths of apotheosis; distilling the eternal from the transient to evoke the fleeting perfection of life like a scarlet flower.

RUBEDO PRESS is consecrated to classical and contemporary works animated by the sophianic fire. Our purview encompasses scholarly monographs and philosophical treatises alongside poetic apperceptions, artistic creations, and esoteric exegeses. One of our principal aims is to cultivate critical academic translations of source texts previously unavailable in English, alongside uniquely emergent works. Working closely with an international peer-review panel, leading and emerging scholars of multiple disciplines, and the highest quality translators of ancient and modern languages, we seek to bring neglected veins of knowledge glistening to light.

RILKE AND SPAIN | Jean Gebser
Translated by Aaron Cheak, PhD

Jean Gebser

Apart from his magisterial opus on the phenomenology of consciousness (The Ever-Present Origin, 1949/1953), the full breadth of Gebser’s œuvre remains largely neglected in the Anglophone world. This release seeks to redress this problem by returning to the poetic roots of Gebserian philosophy. Presented in English for the first time, Gebser’s first book, Rilke and Spain, is a short monograph on the celebrated Bohemian-Austrian poet, Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 -1929). The work is characterised by Gebser’s deep, scholarly rigour, his sensitivity to the finest, most detailed textures, and his ability to open these up to their broadest philosophical implications. From his very first work, therefore, we see the incipient signs of the overwhelming gravity and intensity that would distinguish his later works; a gravity that has the effect of breaking through to a liberating spiritual lucidity. This lucidity is what he sought in Rilke; it would also come to characterise Gebser’s perception of what he later called the integral consciousness.

PASSAGES FROM TOMORROW
Jeremy D. Johnson, MA

Jeremy D Johnson

Futurism meets integral philosophy in this new work of cultural scholarship. Passages From Tomorrow brings decades of integral philosophy—from Jean Gebser to Sri Aurobindo to William Irwin Thompson—to bear on our contemporary world, making the compelling argument that our cultural narratives are shifting from apocalyptic fear of the future to creative and spiritual re-working. Drawing from examples in contemporary media, tracing new elements of self and world in digital art, and performing philosophical exegesis on science fiction and cinema narratives, Passages attempts to bring integral philosophy in contact with our ever-shifting sense of self and world in the search what Teilhard de Chardin described as the process of “planetization.”
