Eighteen essays reexamine Ficino’s life and work focusing on three essential aspects: his significance in his own times, his spreading influence throughout Europe and over subsequent centuries in many areas of thought and creativity, and his enduring relevance today. Translation of his major works from Latin enables a new generation to rediscover and share Ficino’s vision of human potential.

About the Author:

Michael Shepherd was a writer, teacher and obituarist. For him, the compilation of this volume was an education in itself, and he trusts that readers will echo his gratitude to the contributors for their generous participation in this quincentenary celebration.

Review:

"What emerges . . . is a voice immensely sane and pertinent, speaking with deep authority of all that is life-enhancing and holistic."  —Temenos Academy Review

"[Ficino's] writings are an invitation to all mankind, to live as that greater self; to think and act and love universally, as heirs of the whole Creation; and to find joy in this."  —The Compulsive Reader
