About the Author

Paul S. MacDonald, Murdoch University, Australia


'...this volume is a must....There simply is nothing like it on the international publishing menu...the author has found a very appealing style of presentation, keeping the reader fascinated without sacrificing soundness of scholarship.' Horst Ruthrof, Murdoch University Perth Western Australia 'The first volume of this magisterial work concerned the history of the concept of mind within the recognised Western philosophical tradition. Here Paul Macdonald tackles the heterodox and occult tradition with the same thoroughness of scholarship and staggering erudition as was apparent in his earlier book. ... Macdonald's book can serve as an encyclopaedic point of reference to a relatively neglected aspect of the history of ideas sitting alongside his earlier work. Together these books represent a massive intellectual achievement that deserve a wide readership in the academic community while at the same time being accessible to the informed general reader.' Scientific and Medical Network Review
