THE OLYMPIAN DREAMS AND YOUTHFUL REBELLION OF RENE DESCARTES (Used)
by Descartes). Cole, John R
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 3229, 3229
299pp, plus three appendixes, and three indexes: index of his life, index of historical persons, index of scholars post 1800. Here is an interesting story that has rarely been told, that of the peculiar dream life of Rene Descartes, a life he recorded in an unpublished work he titled Olympica. In recounting Descartes' dream notebooks, and attempting an interpretation, John R. Cole, who is a professor of history in Maine, cobbles together many diverse strands of scholarship, history and biography, including an appendix titled 'Technical Questions of Rosicrucian Allegories'. This discusses the idea, first postulated by Paul Arnold in his Histoire des Rose-Croix et les Origines de la Franc-Maconnerie (1955), that Descartes' dream reports were so similar to the Rosicrucian "allegory" Chymische Hochzeit, that this called for further research on the true authorship of both.
