STUDY COURSE ON HOW TO READ ALCHEMICAL TEXTS.

Glasgow: 2011. People nowadays have a growing access through web sites and printed books to many of the ancient alchemical texts. Unfortunately many people, though drawn to and fascinated by this material, just do not know how to read these texts. They are perplexed and frustrated that they cannot make sense of this material. Adam McLean has now created a one year study course of 24 lessons, which enables the student to read the meaning out of these texts. The first half of the course provides the students with ways of recognising the different types of alchemical text and the distinct approaches one has to take to reading different material. There are a number of exercises for the student to work through and many examples of material for them to study in connection with the lessons. Through this course the reader will become familiar with all the main types of alchemical writings, including works of practical alchemy, cosmological alchemy, alchemical allegories, theoretical and spiritual alchemy. The second half of the course provides detailed line by line readings of a number of texts, including some complete works. Hardbound in very good condition. Item #26642
