This chapter considers the wider impact of Traditionalism on the West from the 1960s until the present day. It covers the popularization of Traditionalism through the works of writers such as Louis Pauwels, and the function of Traditionalism as a stepping stone to non-Traditionalist destinations in the lives of many. The chapter goes on to consider the passage of Traditionalism into the general culture of the West through spiritual groups that were not primarily Traditionalist (such as that established in Switzerland by Henri Hartung), through the writings of E. F. Schumacher (author of the widely influential Small Is Beautiful), and through Kathleen Raine’s Temenos Academy in England, of which Prince Charles was patron. The chapter ends with a discussion of an unusual application of Traditionalism, that made by an English feminine-separatist and anti-feminist group, Aristasia.

Keywords:   1960s, Schumacher, spiritual groups, Prince Charles, Raine, feminism
