Walker First published by the Warburg Institute in this book is considered a landmark in Renaissance studies Whereas most scholars had tended to view magic as a marginal subject Walker showed that magic was one of the most typical creations of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries Walker takes readers through the magical concerns of so.

This book is an ongoing conversation about neoplatonism and magic which probably took place in the context of the Warburg Institute between Dame Yates and Walker and many unacknowledged others A review published Mar 27 2012 by Ayinyhvh sums up much of what I might say That review or another recommends the book be read under the guidance of a professor which is not a luxury any book should afford A librarian echoed this and much to my amazement suggested that someone up at Berkeley might t This book is an ongoing conversation about neoplatonism and magic which probably took place in the context of the Warburg Institute between Dame Yates and Walker and many unacknowledged others A review published Mar 27 2012 by Ayinyhvh sums up much of what I might say That review or another recommends the book be read under the guidance of a professor which is not a luxury any book should afford A librarian echoed this and much to my amazement suggested that someone up at Berkeley might take the time to explain it to me Instead I am pursuing another tangent of independent study read other books on the topic and read works by the same author The early chapters of the book pertain to music and the magical uses of music They were independent articles gathered into the larger book and if you are interested in the history of music and theories about why it effects us as it does I would recommend them I think it a struggle for moderns or post moderns to recognize how rhetoric was once a thriving part of curriculum and public thought Certainly our consideration of how language and music has shifted to the visual It s fascinating to think that this book was written after WWII Much scholarship has focused on the role of the media in the rise of the Third ReichPlacing this book in historical context is an exercise Walker does not perform for the many people he discusses in the book Most of the names are unfamiliar unless of course you have a background in Renaissance religious history There is little attempt made to give dates location or context beyond book publication dates Frances Yates might be considered a background read for the book and I have started another Walker book which may clarify the Neoplatonist context I will have to dobackground reading to comprehend and critically understand this book because it is clearly not accessible to me at this time As another review warns many of the footnotes which back his statements are in Latin Greek Italian and French The soul spirit distinction is interesting and the varying forms of pantheism panentheism and animism discussed within the text Normally one would read the sources cited by the author but the traditions of Yates time and place lead me to suspect that this will not be a productive or easy strategy Yates wasn t inclined to clearly site her influences and contemporaries might be mentioned in the foreword but not specifically within the text It s one of the reasons she s been so disrespected Walker might share this because I see very little direct reference to contemporary papers and people However Walker is held in higher respect than Yates
