The Greater And Lesser Worlds Of Robert Fludd: Macrocosm, Microcosm, And Medicine

Pressestimmen “Joscelyn Godwin has written a clearly expressed explanation and analysis of Robert Fludd’s enigmatic, voluminous encyclopedic works. This definitive volume will always be essential for understanding in detail what Fludd’s massive tomes encompassed.”, William H. Huffman, Ph.D., author of Robert Fludd and the End of the Renaissance“Beautifully written, this book allows the reader to skim or go deep with no danger of sinking. Never apologizing for Fludd’s idiosyncrasies and excesses, Godwin gets one thinking as Fludd did and hoped others would.', Thomas Willard, Ph.D., professor of English at the University of Arizona“This lavishly illustrated book is the definitive guide to Robert Fludd’s remarkable attempt at a grand synthesis of all human knowledge. Joscelyn Godwin’s superb scholarship and crystal-clear prose are without equal.', Glenn Alexander Magee, Ph.D., editor of The Cambridge Handbook of Western Mysticism and Esotericism“Robert Fludd attempted to embrace the whole of nature and man and of theory and practice in his volumes on the macrocosm, the microcosm, and medicine and worked out his ideas through striking images. Joscelyn Godwin, in this masterly book, lays out the whole of Fludd’s world in all its splendor.”, Charles Burnett, Ph.D., professor of the history of Islamic influences in Europe at the Warburg Inst Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Joscelyn Godwin was born in Kelmscott, Oxfordshire, England on January 16, 1945.
