'The reader turning to this book for knowledge and self-knowledge will be delighted to find it so instructive, enjoyable, and `user-friendly.' With Tom Moore as guide you will feel at home in the marvelous world of Renaissance Hermetism, its psychological and astrological insights, its music, its madness. How much Moore knows and how generous he is in giving it go the reader.' -- James Hillman, author of The Soul's Code: In Search of Character and Calling and Emotion: A Comprehensive Phenomenology of Theories and Their Meaning for Therapy 'In his presentation of psychological insight and understanding informed by Renaissance astrology and musicology, Dr. Moore's clarity with complex matters is topped only by his wisdom. To tune the fantasy of a `well-tempered life' with the disharmonic of `necessary madness' is precisely the soulful genius that Dr. Moore's master, Ficino, would have loved.' -- David Miller, author of Orestes: Myth and Dream as Catharsis
