The Planets Within

The Astrological Psychology of Marsilio Ficino

Author: Thomas Moore

Publisher: SteinerBooks

The Planets Within asks us to return to antiquity with new eyes. It centers on one of the most psychological movements of the prescientific age Renaissance Italy, where a group of inner Columbuses charted territories that still give us today a much- needed sense of who we are and where we have come from, and the right routes to take toward fertile and unexplored places. Chief among these masters of the interior life was Marsilio Ficino, presiding genius of the Florentine Academy, who taught that all things exist in soul and must be lived in its light. This study of Ficino broadens and deepens our understanding of psyche, for Ficino was a doctor of soul, and his insights teach us the care and nurture of soul. Moore takes as his guide Ficino s own fundamental tool imagination. Respecting the integrity and autonomy of images, The Planets Within unfolds a poetics of soul in a kind of dialogue between the laconic remarks of Ficino and the need to give these remarks a life and context for our day."

Simplicius on the Planets and Their Motions

In Defense of a Heresy

Author: Alan C. Bowen

Publisher: BRILL

The book contends that the digression ending Simplicius’ In de caelo 2.12 is not a proper history of early Greek planetary theory, but a creative atempt to show that to accept Ptolemy’s planetary hypotheses one need not repudiate Aristotle’s argument that the cosmos is eternal.


Memoirs of an Astrophysicist

When my generation grew up, we were never limited by the sky or the stars. Man had already begun to probe its mysteries. Our mothers and fathers before us had created methods, maps, and ships that would forever change their planet and the way their children would view the world. So, when our small new-media company was offered the opportunity to work with John Strand and Pathways to the Planets, we all knew that it was a chance of a lifetime to work with someone who was instrumental in helping man reach that small rock in space called the moon. We live in the new world created by those brave pioneers and today are posed new frontiers; nano-science, cyberspace, molecular medicine, etc... All afforded to us humans, at least in part, by the extraordinary people portrayed in this book. Pathways to the Planets is a unique insight into the lives of those individuals as told through the memoirs of Astrophysicist John Strand. I personally, found this book to be an affirmation for anyone who seeks adventure and welcomes challenge and certainly a must read for those who were there (on earth!) during that exciting time. What a journey producing this book has been!

Dava Sobel's The Glass Universe will be available from Viking in December 2016 With her bestsellers Longitude and Galileo's Daughter, Dava Sobel introduced readers to her rare gift for weaving complex scientific concepts into a compelling narrative. Now Sobel brings her full talents to bear on what is perhaps her most ambitious topic to date-the planets of our solar system. Sobel explores the origins and oddities of the planets through the lens of popular culture, from astrology, mythology, and science fiction to art, music, poetry, biography, and history. Written in her characteristically graceful prose, The Planets is a stunningly original celebration of our solar system and offers a distinctive view of our place in the universe. * A New York Times extended bestseller * A Featured Alternate of the Book-of-the-Month Club, History Book Club, Scientific American Book Club, and Natural Science Book Club * Includes 11 full-color illustrations by artist Lynette R. Cook BACKCOVER: "[The Planets] lets us fall in love with the heavens all over again." -The New York Times Book Review "Playful . . . lyrical . . . a guided tour so imaginative that we forget we're being educated as we're being entertained." -Newsweek " [Sobel] has outdone her extraordinary talent for keeping readers enthralled. . . . Longitude and Galileo's Daughter were exciting enough, but The Planets has a charm of its own . . . . A splendid and enticing book." -San Francisco Chronicle "A sublime journey. [Sobel's] writing . . . is as bright as the sun and its thinking as star-studded as the cosmos." -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "An incantatory serenade to the Solar System.
