The art of memory by Frances A Yates( Book )

97 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: One of Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century. In this classic study of how people learned to retain vast stores of knowledge before the invention of the printed page, Frances A. Yates traces the art of memory from its treatment by Greek orators, through its Gothic transformations in the Middle Ages, to the occult forms it took in the Renaissance, and finally to its use in the seventeenth century. This book, the first to relate the art of memory to the history of culture as a whole, was revolutionary when it first appeared and continues to mesmerize readers with its lucid and revelatory insights
Giordano Bruno and the Hermetic tradition by Frances A Yates( Book )

73 editions published between 1964 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emphasizing the primary importance of Hermetism in Renaissance thought, Yates demonstrates that Bruno was at once a rational philosopher and a magician--burned at the stake--with an orthodox religious message. Her acclaimed study gives an overview not only of Renaissance humanism but its interplay--and conflict--with magic and occult practices.--book cover

In the early 17th century, a new movement was proclaimed throughout Europe, announcing the universal reform of religion, science, art, and society. The main proponents of this movement were the esoteric Rosicrucians. Europe was a world in transition and Rosicrucianism was but the latest movement to capture the public imagination. Concerned with spiritual illumination and intellectual knowledge the movement continued to have widespread influence long after it was supposedly over, as can be traced in the works of Isaac Newton and Fraof modern science and medicine, The Rosicrucian Enlightenment has had a tremendous impact on our understanding of the western esoteric tradition

Giordano Bruno and the hermetic tradition by Frances A Yates( Book )

52 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giordano Bruno is known as the Prophet of the New Age, and his vision of an infinite universe grounded in science is increasingly celebrated. One of the principal forces behind his rediscovery was the great British historian Frances Yates. In calling attention to Giordono Bruno, she paved the way for a revaluation of the esoteric influences at play during the onset of the modern era. Today, when traditional answers about the universe and our place within it are under increasing scrutiny, Giordono Bruno and the Hermetic Tradition proves itself a true classic for our time

The art of memory by Frances A Yates( Book )

41 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique and brilliant book is a history of human knowledge. Before the invention of printing, a trained memory was of vital importance. Based on a technique of impressing 'places' and 'images' on the mind, the ancient Greeks created an elaborate memory system which in turn was inherited by the Romans and passed into the European tradition, to be revived, in occult form, during the Renaissance. Frances Yates sheds light on Dante's Divine Comedy, the form of the Shakespearian theatre and the history of ancient architecture; The Art of Memory is an invaluable contribution to aesthetics and psychology, and to the history of philosophy, of science and of literature
