Here he points out that, although Swedish culture today is largely secular and materialist, there are ancient esoteric roots and many modern currents. The discussion particularly focuses on Emmanuel Swedenborg, August Strindberg, and Hilma of Klint. The Swedish royal family engaged in a variety of esoteric explorations. Parapsychology is also active in Sweden today.
