I have been waiting for this book on the history of female alchemists to be written for at least forty years. These women who explored the alchemical process in the past were the wise women of history, not witches, but alchemists and scientists. To read Robin Gordon s account of their lives and of her own process enables us to make this important encounter with the visionary female wisdom figures she refers to as the Soror Mystica.--Gloria Feman Orenstein, professor of comparative literature and gender studies, University of Southern California"

3.0 von 5 Sternen Badly needed but awkward 30. Januar 2015
Von E. Randolph - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Great potential and badly needed; however, there's an awkwardness to the organization which is distracting. Gordon attempts to review what is known about early women scientists with either knowledge of alchemical procedures (possibly used for medicines) or intellectual associations with others in the field of alchemy, leading up to a discussion of Christian Kabbalah and apocalyptic mysticism. The chapter "Alchemy 101" would have been better presented as two chapters: One on alchemy as science (to include the Royal Society influences discussed later) and one on the Jungian movement which interprets alchemy as a psychological process. Inclusion of Hypatia (mathematician and philosopher) but no mention of Perenelle Flamel or Rebecca Vaughan (commonly accepted "sorores mysticae"). On the other hand, there are few easily accessible analyses of women involved in early alchemy, chemistry, and natural philosophy. Although the thesis is unclear, Dr. Gordon should be commended for seeing the need and providing a focus for further work in this area. Interesting discussion about recipe books as evidence of alchemical procedures or concepts. Useful bibliography for sources about early women scientists. See also: _Women, Science and Medicine 1500-1700: Mothers and Sisters of the Royal Society_ by Lynette Hunter and Sarah Hutton, eds., 1997.
