Hand, Robert – The True Significance of Astrology

The late historian of science Lynn Thorndike wrote an article back in the ’50’s on the real significance of astrology in history. In this article he showed that astrology was the only theoretical system that gave a comprehensive foundation for all natural phenomena before Isaac Newton. This lecture is an update of Thorndike for astrologers. The point of the talk is that astrology’s real significance for the world is something much greater even than most astrologers realize. It shows us something about the way the universe works which is completely different from the worldview held not only by scientists, but by most lay-people as well.
