"This book sets out to show that Goethe was profoundly influenced throughout his life by the religious and philosophical beliefs he derived from his early study of alchemy. Alchemy can be interpreted in many ways . As Goethe knew it, it was primarily concerned with mysticism. In his hands, however, it underwent some transformation: the mystical aspect became less important, while he attempted to provide more logical, more scientific evidence of the symbolical truth of alchemy." [From the preface] Gray's work remains a standard work on this important aspect of Goethe's thinking. This title has not before been available in reprint. Second hand copies are hard to find and sell for as much as $200. We found only one copy for sale on the internet. Published by arrangement with Cambridge University Press.
