During the Renaissance, collections of letters both satisfied humanist enthusiasm for ancient literary forms and provided the flexibility of a format appropriate to many types of inquiry. The printed collections of medical letters by Giovanni Manardo of Ferrara and other physicians in early sixteenth-century Europe may thus be regarded as products of medical humanism. The letters of mid- and late sixteenth-century Italian and German physicians examined in Communities of Learned Experience by Nancy G. Siraisi also illustrate practices associated with the concepts of the Republic of Letters: open and relatively informal communication among a learned community and a liberal exchange of information and ideas. Additionally, such published medical correspondence may often have served to provide mutual reinforcement of professional reputation. Siraisi uses some of these collections to compare approaches to sharing medical knowledge across broad regions of Europe and within a city, with the goal of illuminating geographic differences as well as diversity within social, urban, courtly, and academic environments. The collections she has selected include essays on general medical topics addressed to colleagues or disciples, some advice for individual patients (usually written at the request of the patient’s doctor), and a strong dose of controversy. -- Cynthia Klestinec, Miami University– Ohio

Ist die Annahme eines unilateralen kulturellen Transfers von Süd- nach Nordeuropa in der Frühen Neuzeit noch zu halten? Die Beiträge des interdisziplinären Bandes widersprechen diesem traditionellen Standpunkt und untersuchen die Dynamiken der Wissensproduktion und -zirkulation zwischen der italienischen Halbinsel und dem deutschsprachigen Raum im Verlauf des langen 17. Jahrhunderts. Sie hinterfragen etablierte Axiome und Paradigmen zur deutsch-italienischen Beziehungsgeschichte und zeigen: Die transalpinen Netzwerke in und zwischen den unterschiedlichsten gesellschaftlichen Bereichen - Diplomatie, bildende Künste, Musik und Wissenschaft - waren äußerst komplex.

Albert Einstein once declared: "Science without religion is lame, and religion without science is blind." In The Science of Religion Paramahansa Yogananda (author of the acclaimed spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi) reveals why the answers to the ultimate questions of both science and religion do not lie in scholarly research or blind belief, but in direct personal experience of a higher Reality that underlies and sustains all life. With compelling logic, he explores the relative effectiveness of various approaches to this goal - from traditional intellectual and religious disciplines to metaphysical practices that lead beyond the conscious and subconscious mind to a superconscious awareness. Stripping away the cloaks of dogma and doctrine, he redefines religion on a basis at once universal and intensely personal.
