Summary: Marsilio Ficino was one of the most influential humanist philosophers of the early Italian Renaissance.

In a lengthy introduction, editor Angela Voss puts Ficino's achievement in context as a complete re-visioning of traditional astrological practice and
the beginning of a humanistic and psychological approach that prefigured contemporary holistic approaches to astrology as therapy.
