This book is an introductory study on Renaissance philosophy and magic focusing on Marsilio Ficino and his influence during the 15th through 17th centuries Ficino was a very interesting man who to me somewhat embodies the Renaissance scholar He was a Neo Platonist in philosophy having translated many works in that vein as well as influenced deeply by the Hermetic writers He was also deeply interested in Astrology and talismatic magic all of which along with music form the basis of his magicalphilosophical systemAfter getting the basis of his system described Walker then begins to show the influence Ficino s ideas had on other philosophers Of those influenced Cornelius Agrippa and his Three Books of Occult Philosophy are of the most interest Many of Ficino s ideas are included even if not accredited and Agrippa expands on Ficino in directions he wouldn t do so openly for fear of being accused of working with demons Agrippa obviously didn t have an issue with that Walker then shows us some who are against Ficino s ideas like Wier and Erastus Most of his detractors focus on his Astrology andor the possibility of working with demons while using his talismans saying that an outside entity causes the talisman to work hence demonic assistance Also Ficino s orphic singingmusic could be considered an invocation if words were used and not only music Walker then gives a uick look at the Telesian philosophers I believe the biggest deal on them was their idea which was different from Ficino that the stars were of fire rather than spirit which then had a big influence on Campanella Campanella s ideas were fascinating in that in order to avert the possibility of say an astrological disaster he would create an entire universe in a sealed room with lights and open flames representing the planets and stars as well as usiing appropriate incenses and flowers etc to maintain a perfect and safe microcosm while the adverse conditiion outside of the room went through its phase Whereas Ficino would work with talismans to bring in planetary influences to empower and benefit a person Campanella would literally create a living talismatic self contained sphere Pretty incredible and worth investigating further In fact the whole idea sort of reminds me of the basis of Aleister Crowley s Moonchild Overall this book is an incredible resource and should be read by any interested in Renaissance thought and magic It makes a great spring board for either delving into certain personalities deeper or investigating the neo platonic and hermetic influences in greater depth

Review ç Spiritual and Demonic Magic From Ficino to Campanella Ê PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ew introduction by Brian Copenhaver one of our leading experts on the place of magic in intellectual history DP Walker 1914 1985 was trained at Oxford and spent most of his career at the Warburg Institute of the University of London His other books are The Decline of Hell Warburg 1964 The Ancient Theology Duckworth 1972 and Unclean Spirits Possession and Exorcism in France and England in the Late Sixteenth and Early Seventeenth Centuries Scolar 198. In this landmark study DP Walker of the Warburg Institute single handedly initiated the etic academic study of Western esotericism by exploring the relationships between the philosophies and magical practices of Renaissance thinkers such as Marsilio Ficino 1433 1499 Giovanni Pico della Mirandola1463 1494 Cornelius Agrippa 1486 1535 and Tommaso Campanella 1568 1639 Of primary interest to me was Walker s extensive mapping out of the theoretical foundations upon which Ficino s and all subseuent Hermetic magicians practices rested He manages to effectively chart the fluctuations between so called natural and demonic magic during the Renaissance and demonstrates how the resulting tensions owed far to external stressors ie the Church than to anything internal logic As an exploration of Renaissance magical theory Walker s study has aged exceedingly well and is just as relevant to the study of Western esotericism as it was in 1958
