Newton, Boyle, Locke and other great 'rational' figures of the Enlightenment embraced the magical and occult to a surprising extent, while the popular audience for occult publications grew even when official disapproval was at its strongest. Surveying British occult thinking from 1650 to 1815, Monod brings out its distinctive openness to both learned and popular ideas, and shows how the occult was not discarded in favour of 'reason', but incorporated into new forms of learning.
