Antiphon the Athenian: Oratory, Law, and Justice in the Age of the Sophists
Publisher - University of Texas Press | ISBN 0292728417| 1st Edition 2002 | PDF | 236 Pages | 3.2 MB

Antiphon was a fifth-century Athenian intellectual (ca. 480-411 BCE) who created the profession of speechwriting while serving as an influential and highly sought-out adviser to litigants in the Athenian courts. Three of his speeches are preserved, together with three sets of Tetralogies (four hypothetical paired speeches), whose authenticity is sometimes doubted. Fragments also survive of intellectual treatises on subjects including justice, law, and nature (physis), which are often attributed to a separate Antiphon the Sophist. Were these two Antiphons really one and the same individual, endowed with a wide-ranging mind ready to tackle most of the diverse intellectual interests of his day?

Frabato. Autobiographischer Roman
Rüggeberg(1997-12) | ISBN: 3921338263 | 204 Pages | 453 KB | DJVU
Ueber Magie und Okkultismus ist schon viel geschrieben worden und der Begriff Schwarzmagie lässt viele erschaudern. Geradezu archetypische Verhaltensmuster scheinen sich bei diesen Begriffen heraufzubeschwören. Der Unterschied zwischen weisser und schwarzer Magie ist auch den wenigsten geläufig, zudem man bei Magie eher an David Copperfield und Uri Geller als an Urenergien aus einer unserer Wahrnehmung entzogenen Ebene denkt. Das vorliegende Buch gibt einen ausgezeichneten Einblick in die "Anwendungsgebiete und Wirkungsweisen" weisser und vor allen Dingen schwarzer Magie. Es zeigt auf, was sich hinter den Machtstrukturen von Logen verbergen könnte und welche tödlichen Mechanismen dafür sorgen, dass Logengeheimnisse über Jahrhunderte derart gut gehütet werden können.

Medicine & Magic in the Elisabethan London; Simon Forman: Astrologer, Alchemist, & Physician

Lauren Kassel, Medicine & Magic in the Elisabethan London; Simon Forman: Astrologer, Alchemist, & Physician
Clarendon Press Oxford | ISBN 0199215273 | 2006 | PDF | 6.26 MB | 300 pages

Forman was an untutored, irregular medical practitioner, more concerned with the complexities of medical practices than the intricacies of doctrinal positions. Occasionally he opposed Galenic medicine and promoted a Paracelsian cosmology. He never articulated a clear philosophy of medicine, though in his final decade he came close, prompted by his conflicts with the College of Physicians. Mostly he expounded the virtues of the astrologerphysician and protested his divinely imparted gifts to read the stars and heal disease. He called himself a physician and a gentleman, and, without affixing a label to his activities, he presented himself as a philosopher, adept, prophet, and magus, heir to the wisdom of Adam, Moses, Hermes Trismegistus, and Solomon.Forman’s medical ideas and practices cannot be separated from his pursuit of astrology, alchemy, and magic. This study is as much about the occult, or hermetic sciences as it is about the history of medicine.
Newton: A Very Short Introduction

Robert Iliffe, Newton: A Very Short Introduction
Oxford University Press | ISBN 9780199298037 | 2007 | PDF | 1.5 MB | 161 pages

Newton adopted varied approaches to problems in different areas of his work, although that is not to deny that there were connections and continuities between different strands of his intellectual research. Although it was necessarily a personal enterprise, he himself viewed his theological research as the defining aspect of his life, and the language and meaning of Scripture – along with what it said about his role in history – governed his conduct more than anything else. Respect should be paid to his intense if rather bookoriented faith, yet the astonishing courage, imagination, and originality that colour his achievements in optics, physics, and mathematics are more worthy of our admiration. As Conduitt struggled to finish his ‘Life’ of Newton, he came perilously close to asserting that Newton’s qualities made him more than human. While he was not a divinity, there was justification in Halley’s view that no human could ever get closer to the gods.

Paramahansa Yogananda , Autobiography of a Yogi
Self-Realization Fellowship Publishers | ISBN 0876120796 | 1946 | PDF | 2.23 MB | 522 pages

Autobiography of a Yogi is not an ordinary book. It is a spiritual treasure. To read its message of hope to all truthseekers is to begin a great adventure. Paramhansa Yogananda was the first yoga master of India whose mission it was to permanently live and teach in the West. In the 1920's, as he criss-crossed the United States on what he called his "spiritual campaigns," his enthusiastic audiences filled the largest halls in America. His initial impact was truly impressive. But his lasting influence is greater still. This single volume, Autobiography of a Yogi, first published in 1946, helped launch, and continues to inspire, a spiritual revolution in the West.
