    Giordano Bruno

    This is a Phoenix-thread from the old site.

    I am not that knowledgeable on Giordano Bruno, but I thought a thread on this forgotten philosopher is the least I can do. Perhaps some of you will be able to add some stuff to this.

    The Heroic Frenzies by Giordano Bruno
    Complete works of Bruno

Also, John Crowley's Tetradology, The Aegypt Cycle (Aegypt, Love and Sleep, Daemonomania, Endless Things) is a marvelous work of magic realism which features Bruno, Dee, and Shakespeare as major characters juxtaposed with a modern-day narrative. The structure of the books is interesting, since each of the 4 books has 3 parts, following the order of the decanates of the zodiac. The result is an alchemical 'memory mansion' which depicts a full-circle of transformations. cool stuff.

    I guess I will have to get them now!
