Looking for a girl nsa fwb try again later. From the United States. Verified Purchase. Eros and Magic is much more than a study of Eros as applied by chicavo Renaissance occult philosophies. It's a study of human interrelationships on both global and individual scales, coming only too close to the very contemporary form of magic -- a psycho-sociological science of societal indoctrination and manipulative social conditioning, magnificently employed by our highly cynical and enlightened era, which falsely and mistakenly, according to Culianu, identifies itself and its admired figure of Giordano Bruno as democratic.
As the author concludes, "Modern Western civilization is altogether a product of the Reformation On the theoretical level, the pervasive censorship of the imaginary in the advent of modern exact science and technology" The reader can only sadly sigh, hoping that maybe, just maybe, not everything is completely lost.

There was a problem loading comments right now. One thing I could say for starters - a lot of what's said about Eros here would be helpful for those hoping to tackle some of Agrippa, Trithemeus, or Giordano Bruno's works, especially Hermetic revivalists and practitioners.
The other piece - I've often been curious about how our culture is so filled with symbols hearkening back to Greco-Egyptian antiquity, how the Renaissance was filled with a resurgence of the types of syncretic ideas that were around in late antiquity, and yet somehow these ideas were squeezed out so thoroughly that the culture I've known from birth late was defined by both atheist reductionism and a Christianity that seemed to similarly externalize all things, and the two seemed to be in a strange tug-of-war in the same domain.
An invaluable resource on Renaissance ideas in context that illustrates how and why Eros and magic are crucial to understanding ourselves and our times today.
The author's breadth, candor and purchase on the topic seems quite good, excellent actually, and the book is very well written and edited. This is man seeking man in norwich great tool for escorst artists as well as those who work through theater, dance, advertising, liturgy and music who care to understand philosophically what they are doing, in that it helps the reader go deeper into understanding the amazing power of the visual image and how image engages us both willingly and unwillingly perhaps.
Our world is increasingly visual and scholarship doesn't go esxorts far towards offering a sound and deeply historical tradition based explanation of SEEING. This goes beyond the rather unsatisfying, eecorts explanations that dominate most discussion these days yet which cannot really offer any progress towards making sense of historical ideas. I like the sterling erudition and use of Latin and references to antiquity.
Eros and Magic in the Renaissance, Couliano, Cook
I bought this book to increase my understanding of the history, philosophy, and psychology of the Reinessance. One person found this helpful. According to Couliano, "the crowning wish eroa the historian of ideas is Judged by this standard, the book is a huge success. The diligent reader will unearth many uncanny insights into the renaissance mind and its understanding of magic. This seems to be the author's fault and not the translator's.
Expect to wrestle with vague pronouns, run-on sentences, undefined terms, and a chicagp lack of both chronological chicafo and topical focus. Similarly 'the Florentine Plato' is presumably Marsilio Ficino but that's just my guess. Despite the brevity of this text, the level of academic detail is mindnumbing, and the reader must endure many sterile s between each 'money shot. Since he was addressing the french academy of the early 's, the book is steeped in continental philosophy and written in obnoxiously florid prose.
If you are not this sort of specialist, you will still find a lot of valuable stuff dros just be be prepared to do some intellectual history of your own. The book provides insights into some of the relevant topics during the Renaussance and provides topics for follow up. Some of his analysis is unusual and misguided.
The gem in this book is the passage talking about the Renaissance's own rebel, Giordano Bruno, who was way too advance for his own time. He died at the stake. The concept of Eros as an all encompassing cchicago force, is indeed very thought provoking.
This book argues that modern science is born after the Renaissance, and represents an entirely new manner prostitute hire armadale acquring and working with knowledge. As such, Couliano argues, modern science does dscorts represent a linear extension or progression of Renaissance science, but rather a wholesale replacement, which essentially abandons avenues of exploration opened by the Greeks and later re-opened by Italian Neoplatonists, such as Giordano Bruno and Marsilio Ficino.
Couliano goes so far as to suggest that our trust in quantitative science is so central to our contemporary worldview that the subjectivity of a Renaissance-era thinker would strike us as fundamentally unrecognizable. This book works both as a fascinating elaboration of this alien Renaissance mindset and a critique of the modern scientific worldview, with Couliano firmly rejecting the notion that its rise represents a kind of "progress.
Actually, as Couliano explains in his final chapters, these methods are less "abandoned" and are more supressed by the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, who tly align these sciences with heresy and persecute chkcago practicioners. It is interesting to note that this alignment is still with us: see for instance the continued resonance of the Faust legend, which represents a man of knowledge as a servant of the devil, or any of the countless films or other cultural products which have depicted Satan as an erudite Italian.
This book also makes escrts compelling case that these suppressed methods of knowledge-work continue to exist today in the form of various sciences and quasi-sciences: advertising, mass media, psychology, cryptography, and what Couliano calls "applied psychosociology. A difficult task, perhaps, but Couliano's book provides an excellent starting point.

One, Couliano wishes to elucidate what he sees as the defining charachteristic of Renaissance Magic, that of "Eros," and also to for the shift in thinking that reportedly heralded the indian independent escorts sheffield of magic in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. The "eros" of Renaissance magic started out with optical theory and other medical concerns with Aristotle and perhaps Platowho held that there was a substance called the "pneuma.
In Stoic medical theory, this became a substance commesurate with the "soul" or "spirit.
The heart was the center for a generational organ that in turn centered the pneuma, This pneumatic organ was called in Greek the "hegimonikon. Through the works of late brisbane pakistani escort, such as the Corpus Hermeticum and medieval physicians such as Albert the Great, the doctrine of the pneuma became common discourse and was incorporated into popular culture such as the courtly love tradition.
