Who is Agrippa von Nettesheim?

December 13, 2020 Off By Felso

German philosopher, physician, alchemist and Christian kabbalist. Became the historian of Karl V.

He was accused of witchcraft; he was imprisoned and died in misery. His work called philosophy of occulta sciences (de occulta philosophia libri tres) is very comprehensive; It contains important information in terms of occultism, esotericism, alchemy, astrology and magical concepts.

Another of his books, “the uncertainty and nothingness of the sciences,” appears to be contradictory. His views attracted great attention among university students as an alternative to the Aristotelian philosophy of nature taught in universities; For years they sought the ability to use magical secrets to control both the natural world and the spirit world.
