Chapter Summary

This chapter is in German with a brief English abstract which deals with some miscellaneous points on Bernhard Varenius' Geographia Generalis. The following topics are discussed: (1) The influence of Varenius' Geographia Generalis (reprints, revised editions, translations) resulted from the systematic general account of the standard of geographical knowledge at that time, useful for students; (2) The term 'affectiones' already appears in the title; it is often equated with 'proprietates', which means 'properties, typical features'; (3) Although Varenius explains equally the arguments of the Ptolemaics (Aristoteleans) and Copernicans, there can be no doubt about his supporting the heliocentric system; and (4) Varenius' work exhibits signs of reasoning by means of causal connections.
