Natural philosophy and medicine in Antiquity and early modern Europe; Paracelsianism; alchemy; science and religion; science and esotericism; intellectual history; history of ideas

I am interested in natural philosophy and medicine in Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and early-modern Europe, especially as these subjects relate to religion and esotericism. My special interests are in alchemy, Paracelsianism, Hermeticism, Christian mysticism, and natural magic. Topically, I am drawn toward ideas about cosmology, cosmogony, matter theory, and epistemology.
