The body as instrument by Cambridge Latin Therapy Group( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge Latin Therapy Group's third booklet, discussing the different uses of the human body as an instrument in writings by the venerable Bede, Johannes Kepler, Robert Fludd, and the anonymous writers of a bestiary and lecture notes from sixteenth-century Vienna. The reader will encounter a maiden and a unicorn, Saint Anastasius, a dismembered hand and a protective medalet, but also be informed about Fludd's idea of the body as a monochord and Kepler's use of bodily imagery in his conception of the world and the cosmos. In itself an instrument of understanding, this publication presents texts and translations as well as notes and theories. [d'après la 4e de couverture]
