Phanes (fa-nays) means "manifester" or "revealer", and is related to the Greek words "light" and "to shine forth".

Phanes Press was founded in 1985 to publish quality books on the spiritual, philosophical, and cosmological traditions of the Western world. Since that time, we have published 45 books, including five volumes of Alexandria, a book-length journal of cosmology, philosophy, myth, and culture.

The year 2000 marks our fifteen-year anniversary, and we are working to bring out more interdisciplinary works, including books on creativity, psychology, literature, and the intersections between science, spirituality, and culture.

How the stages of the alchemical process relate to psychological and spiritual growth.
