BRIAN COPENHAVER HERMETICA PDF

Brian P. He teaches and writes about philosophy, religion and science in late medieval and early modern Europe. Copenhaver studies magic and related beliefs and practices — astrology, [5] demonology, divination, Kabbalah [6] — as parts of normative philosophy and science as they were a few centuries ago. His research shows that magic [7] [8] [9] [10] and other "occult" beliefs and practices were supported primarily by the philosophy and science of Aristotle and Aristotelian scholasticism, which dominated European culture from the thirteenth through the seventeenth centuries. When confidence in Aristotelianism collapsed in the seventeenth century, magic and its attendant beliefs collapsed with it as serious issues for Europe's leading thinkers. He also studies the ancient Greek and Latin Hermetica , [11] writings from late antiquity ascribed by Renaissance scholars [12] to an ancient Egyptian god, Thoth , whose Greek name is Hermes Trismegistus.

Brian P. Copenhaver , Hermes Trismegistus. The Hermetica are a body of mystical texts written in late antiquity, but believed during the Renaissance when they became well known to be much older.

Their supposed author, a mythical figure named Hermes Trismegistus, was thought to be a contemporary of Moses. The Hermetic philosophy was regarded as an ancient theology, parallel to the revealed wisdom of the Bible, supporting Biblical revelation and culminating in the Platonic philosophical tradition. This new translation is the only English version based on reliable texts, and Professor Copenhaver's introduction and notes make this accessible and up-to-date edition an indispensable resource to scholars.
