Overview

Collected here are four treatises that illustrate four different aspects of Paracelsus' work. The first gives a passionate justification of his character, activities, and views, and offers a picture of the man and his fundamental ideas. The second treatise is a study on the diseases of miners, with whom Paracelsus spent a great deal of time. Then follows a pioneering treatise on psychology and psychiatry which was written at a time when mental diseases were beginning to be studied and treated by physicians. The last essay is a fanciful and poetic treatment of paganism and Greek mythology, as well as a good sample of Paracelsus' philosophy and theology. Together these essays show one of the most original minds of the Renaissance at the height of his powers.
