Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book White Magic, Black Magic in the European Renaissance presents the table of contents and acknowledgments. During the Renaissance the whole idea of nature changed, of its infinity and its limits, of man's dominion over the physical world both vegetables and animals, and of the regularity of physical and biological phenomena. Certain philosophical theories which provided an interpretation of these ideas of nature, of its laws and exceptions and, lastly, of man's capacity to dominate the cosmos are explored in the book.
