"…This book regards astrology and alchemy as fossil sciences rather than as human stupidity. Fossils were once well adjusted to life, but in time lost that adjustment, and perished. The work also raises the question –What is superstition? …Reason, the book shows, was impotent for centuries in challenging the appeal of the astrological and alchemical assumptions. The best minds of the times parried all questions and doubts with perfect logic and evidence. Here is a novel attempt to isolate and clarify some of the factors in the process, its painful conflicts (e.g. Galileo), its vicissitudes and its triumphs" (from the dust jacket).
