The search inspired by Plato's myth of Atlantis has led to innumerable theories about where it was, what it was like, and why it ended. A special group of theories breaks the rules of rationalist history by allowing spiritual, psychic, and occult realities to play a part. This talk describes some of these, and their consequences.

Joscelyn Godwin grew up in Oxford and was educated at Cambridge (Magdalene College). Coming to the USA in 1966, he studied at Cornell (Ph. D. in Musicology) and has taught for many years at Colgate University in New York State. Alongside his career as a music historian (with books including Harmonies of Heaven and Earth and Music and the Occult), he has written, edited, and translated many works on the Western Esoteric Tradition. They include studies of the Hermetic philosophers Robert Fludd and Athanasius Kircher, The Theosophical Enlightenment, Arktos: The Polar Myth in Science, Symbolism, and Nazi Survival, The Pagan Dream of the Renaissance, The Golden Thread: The Ageless Wisdom of the Western Mystery Traditions, and a translation of the monumental Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, an erotic-architectural fantasy of 1499. Godwin teaches perhaps the only college course on "The Atlantis Debate," interpreted as the question of whether there was high civilization in prehistoric times. Without claiming to settle the debate one way or another, he uses it to raise questions about cosmology, the scientific method, rejected knowledge, and the will to believe or disbelieve.
