Dec 31, 2017This was a great way to finish the year.
Jan 12, 2018It has a great introduction on the western esoteric tradition in general and how Ficino fits in it all in particular. Voss' style is very pleasant to read and informative - from Hermes Trimegistus to Plotinus, it gives an overview of how ancient philosophers have shaped western esotericism. It is also worth to reread it after finishing the book to better understand the contents of the book.
Jul 20, 2018Ficino in these texts incorporates astrology into the Christian paradigm Platonically, as a metaphorical discourse. The motion of the planets is not the creator of fate, but rather a model for how fate is manifested. It is wonderful to explore the labyrinthine exposition of Ficino's thought, even if the whole is a shaggy dog story capped by his disingenuous disavowal of celestial philosophy in the final letter.
May 21, 2017Unfortunately just did not grab me. Gives some interesting back ground to the mystic tradition of the gnostic philosophers. Not an especially interesting or well written book. Best reserved for phd students or persons with a very specialized interest in Ficino.
