Synopsis

Synopsis

Regarded today as the father of modern medicine, Paracelsus (1493-1541) was in fact much more besides. Natural scientist, philosopher, alchemist, with a deep distrust of orthodoxy and rational thought, he intermixed Christian theology with the Qabalah, believing that magic reveals the invisible influences behind things, bringing heavenly forces down to earth.
Praise

Praise

"[This] volume is of particular value to the historian of ideas in making the contribution of Parcelsus available to the general reader and enabling us to see the contemporary relevance of his world-view and the seminal nature of his contributions to the intellectual debates of his time."
- David Lorimer, The Scientific and Medical Network Newsletter

"This new collection will serve a useful purpose for those who wish to introduce Paracelsus in their course on Renaissance and Early Modern science and medicine."
- Allen G. Debus, The University of Chicago, Ambix.
