“Through cross-disciplinary scholarly research, Vadge Moore presents a solidly-grounded philosophical worldview centered around the chthonic – an unapologetically dark, nihilistic mysticism which does not require the dependent counterbalance of a benevolent “God” to assert itself. Chthonic: Prose & Theory delineates Moore’s idiosyncratic, previously unexplored means by which to approach an all-inclusive understanding of the Absolute; not by self-effacing penitence and sublimation to a supposedly munificent God, but through the sin-drenched Left-Hand path of the Devil.
