Remi Boyer has explored at length the world of the avant-garde, initiatory traditions, and philosophies of enlightenment. Notably, he works within the setting of the House of Surrealists in Cordes-sur-Ciel, for a new alliance between traditions, philosophies of awakening, and the artistic avant-garde. Considering literature as a form of metaphysics, he became actively involved in the journal movement of the 1980s and has since collaborated on various traditional journals in Europe. He is the author of some twenty specialized works, particularly on Western initiatory movements, works translated into several languages. Since 1992, he has edited the review L'Esprit des Choses, founded with Robert Amadou, specializing in the philosophy of Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin, Martinism, and Freemasonry. He is regularly invited to give lectures and lead seminars on initiation related topics in most European countries.
