Über diesen Titel:
This facsimile reprint of the 1831 edition is a group of brief translations dealing with astrotheology. Maternus was one of the most famous early astrologers and is second in authority only to Ptolemy of Alexandria. His horoscope of the world is included from the 1533 edition of the Libri Matheseos and his discussion of the Thema Mundi. Proclus' contribution deals with the mystery of time as explained in Neoplatonism.
Vom Verlag: The Philosophical Research Society is a nonprofit organization founded in 1934 for the purpose of assisting thoughtful persons to live more graciously and constructively in a confused and troubled world. The Society is entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control. Dedicated to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems, the Society's program stresses the need for the integration of religion, philosophy, and the science of psychology into one system of instruction. The goal of this instruction is to enable the individual to develop a mature philosophy of life, to recognize his proper responsibilities and opportunities, and to understand and appreciate his place in the unfolding universal pattern.
