Description du produit

Solomon's Secret Arts The late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are known as the Age of Enlightenment, a time of science and reason. In this book, the author reveals the surprising extent to which Newton, Boyle, Locke, and other giants of rational thought and empiricism also embraced the spiritual, the magical, and the occult.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a wealth of information. 2 février 2014
Par Joey - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book covers a tremendous amount of info in a rather short period of English history: 1650-1815. For those of us who are fans of obscure English intellectual history, this book will keep them busy for awhile. The author covers many topics that are part of or touch upon the occult: alchemy, astrology, ritual magic, Kabbalah, freemasonry, prophets, Swedenborgians, Behmenists, magnetic healing, graphic novels, etc.
The occult has had an effect on intellectual thinking throughout the Enlightenment and still does to this day.
The only downside of this book is that there is so much throwing of names and concepts, it is not always easy to keep things straight. Not a casual read.

Par E. Randolph - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Good overview of the movement from the "occultism" of the seventeenth century to the modern revival of the nineteenth century. Especially interesting: The history of astrology and the use of almanacs; the invisible contributions of women (unfortunately still invisible in the thesis but many mentioned in passing); the influence of Boehme and his followers. Not a light read but manageable for anyone familiar with the pieces and parts of the history of Western Esotericism but who wants a comprehensive overview of threads and influences. Overuse of "middling sort" without a good explanation of what is meant (middle class? informally educated? half-baked?) and why it matters. I had occasional doubts about unsourced claims, but this could be simply my own lack of background in some areas. Good font, index and endnotes. Bibliography embedded in endnotes (not separate). Title is appropriate but perhaps overly speculative: Be aware that this is an academic history, not a fireside chat. Scholarly Masonic types will also be interested.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How mysticism went from quackery to popular fiction. 26 mai 2014
Par B. Wolinsky - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Paul Kleber Monod’s book starts out on a humorous note. The alchemists of the middle ages were after the legendary “philosopher’s stone” that would turn base metals into gold. The Protestant enlightenment of the time was ripe for a pipe dream like this, and even the kind of England got involved. It didn’t work, but along the way the alchemists discovered new alloys, pigments, and many other metal-based chemicals that are still in use today.

Now let’s look at John Webster, alchemist and astrologer. He spoke out against witchcraft in in England, while enjoying the attention of people fascinated by his kooky scientific studies. Keep in mind that these famous scholars were all upper-class Englishmen, and they wanted to keep all the credit for themselves. In fact most of the great scientists, writers, and explorers of the era were from the upper classes, not the lower ones. But the author tells how this would end.

The American Revolution really wounded the confidence of the British. Into that era came Ebeneezer Sibly, who wrote a bestselling book on mysticism. He published the names of “demons” that only he knew about, gathered from “texts” that only he’d seen. He had his own printer to churn it out, and aimed it at lowbrow readers, releasing the book in the form of installments that the poor could afford. He used this market to sell his own quack medicines.

Today we have horror writers like Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Peter Straub, and countless others, some of whom write stories for paperbacks that you see in the airport news stand. A genre that was once seen as fact is now popular fiction. If Stephen King had written ‘Salem’s Lot in 1650, he could’ve claimed it was true and everyone would’ve believed it.

An extraordinary readable view of an arcane topic. The author gives serious consideration to this domain of human imaginative thought, and consistently offers count interpretations of of the sometime obscure meanings of 17th & 18th c language. Seems comprehensive and though with insights of time and place.
