Bruno, Expulsion, ; “[il] magico e divino culto degli Egizii” Bruno, Dialoghi, 2: In the Third dialogue Jove says that it is the creative and industrious part of man – his ability to create other forms via the use of his intellectual capacities – which renders him god-like: Dictas igitur cum in ipsa singularitates acceperim dignum existimaui vt sub tui nominis splendore curreret: Magic, Alchemy, and the Occult: Bruno, De umbris, 3 1.

In the second dialogue of the Spaccio Jove exhorts Diligence: By the time circeaus Bruno arrived in England in the spring of he had already published three treatises on mnemotechnics in Paris: Bruno, Expulsion, ; “riformata la faculta razionale circa la contemplazion de la natura” Bruno, Dialoghi, 2: Porro fortiores atque vehementiores fortius consequentia quadam atque vehementius imprimunt” Bruno, lordani Bruni Nolani Opera, 2, 2: In the second part of the Eroici Bruno explicitly identifies circaaeus “heroic frenzies” of the Eroici with the outcome of the memory art as it is cantuw in the Triginta sigillorum explicatio Comparing the ecstatic transport of his heroic lover with Iamblichus’s account of the soul leaving the body during mystical contemplation, Bruno insists that what he is describing is precisely a “contraction” of the kind which he described in the Sigillum sigillorum: This is why Bruno insists that his mnemotechnical arts were simultaneously a logic, a physics and a metaphysics.


When all the affections are completely converted to God, that is, to the idea of ideas, by the light of intelligible things, the mind is exalted to the suprasensual unity, and all is love, all one, and it no longer feels itself solicited and distracted by diverse objects, but becomes one sole wound, in which all the affections gather to become a single affection.

In the Eroici we find the same insistence on the interdependence of intellection and appetition. Bruno does not elaborate what he means by the final two stages of this upward progress, that is, “the transformation of oneself into the thing” and “the transformation of the thing into oneself.

This form of “love” is an intellectual act: Circcaeus Liberio says in the third dialogue of the second part: Cantus Circaeus Classic Reprint. The “more vehement and stronger” these forms are the more effectively they motivate the passions.

Bruno, Ol, ; “la cognizione muove l’affetto, ed appresso l’affetto muove la cognizione” Bruno, Dialoghi, 2: These frenzies of which we speak and which we see put into execution in these dialogues, are not a forgetfulness, but a memory; they are not careless actions but loves and desires of the beautiful and the good by. The order, the initiation, the disposition, the index of the method, cangus tree, the theatre and arena of the virtues and the vices – where afterward one must discuss, inquire, inform oneself, correct oneself, distend oneself, betake oneself, and pitch one’s tent on other considerations, when, determining upon everything according to our own light and intention, we shall explain ourselves in numerous other particular dialogues, in canttus the universal architecture of such a philosophy will be fully completed and in which we shall reason in a more definite manner.

Moreover let each one gather from this medium the fruits that he can, according to the capacity of his own bowl.
