9781523374878: Thinking Interrupted / Comprehending Culianu’s Model, from Gnosis to Constructal Law

Ioan Petru Culianu (1950-1991), is well known as a specialist in Gnosticism, early Christianity, and the Renaissance. But his interest exceeded Religious Studies or History of Ideas, and entered into other scientific theories, such as Mandelbrot’s theory of fractals. Culianu was in search of a model that could explain not only Religion, but Science and Philosophy as well. He did not have time to finish explaining his intuitions, which nonetheless prove to be so appealing, nor to encounter a new theory of Physics, the Constructal law. Had he lived longer, the Constructal law would have offered him what he was looking for. This book – the result of eighteen months post-doctoral studies – analyses the oeuvre of Ioan Petru Culianu towards a better understanding of his theory. It also offers, in the last chapter, an investigation of the Constructal law and its application in Religious Studies.
