4.0 out of 5 stars Getting a grip on Agrippa 18 Jun 2000
By Mark Stavish, The Institute for Hermetic Studies - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For modern students of magic the Renaissance has an irresistible appeal. Yet, when confronted with the mass of material that such masters of the Art as Agrippa present, they are often overwhelmed. It is not just five hundred years that seperate us from them, but an entire attitude, a way of looking at the world. Schrodter helps us to bridge that gap and makes the visible and invisible worlds of the Renaissance Magi accessible to modern practitioners of the arcane arts. While not a book for beginners, it is an excellant adjunct to anyone attempting to read Cornelius Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy" or even the works of Dee, Ficino, Trithemius, or Albertus Magnus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad to find something like this. 2 April 2011
By Billy Kornacki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Agrippa's Occult Philosophy is not a book for "light reading". It is very difficult to understand what Agrippa is trying to convey because of the sentence structure and grammar. I have tried for years to get through the book and end up with a headache every time...I just don't understand the man's English! With this book, the commentary starts at about chapter 6 and works through the book attempting to explain just what Agrippa was saying, in modern language. If you want to understand Agrippa's Philosophy this book will help you work though it. It is NOT, however, a book you can pick up and read in place of Agrippa's and expect to come away with all the information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is it really a help? 13 Jun 2007
By Lemich Drakkar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I ordered the book, I was expecting that it would delineate, amplify and develop the content of the "philosophy" of Agrippa. Well, I didn't get this impression, since the book is the sum of isolated comments of a gifted scholar in occultism.
It does not mean that the Commentaries have little value, but it is not the type of document which leads to a better understanding of the Agrippa philosophy. The bibliography is also outdated.
On the other hand, if you are interested in the occultism in general and its history, it is interesting to get it.
