Robert Burton The Anatomy of Melancholy

Robert Burton The Anatomy of Melancholy: Philosophy Classic


Although presented as a medical text, The Anatomy of Melancholy is as much a sui generis work of literature as it is a scientific or philosophical text, and Robert Burton addresses far more than his stated subject. In fact, the Anatomy uses melancholy as the lens through which all human emotion and thought may be scrutinized, and virtually the entire contents of a 17th-century library are marshalled into service of this goal.

Robert Burton The Anatomy of Melancholy (Volume III of III)


A labor of love taking much of Burton's life to write and revise, «The Anatomy of Melancholy» is an expansive, informative, and eccentric work of genius first published in 1621. Burton was an English churchman and a scholar, and his depth and breadth of knowledge is readily apparent in this inexhaustible book. Through the frame of a medical treatise, Burton begins with melancholy and slowly deals with various mental states, frequently digressing with commentary from a myriad of other fields, including history, literature, psychology, astronomy, and theology. Though he quotes medical experts from Hippocrates and Aristotle to many medieval authorities, Burton just as often includes Latin poetry in a manner bordering on a stream of consciousness. Through this plethora of references on the human condition, as well as Burton's alternately serious and satirical tone, «The Anatomy of Melancholy» eloquently portrays the whole of human knowledge up to its day in a charming and imaginative way that will allow this work to endure as a classic of the English language. In this edition we have the third of three volumes.

Burton T. The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy Other Stories

Burton Robert The Anatomy of Melancholy - The Original Classic Edition


Absolutely the Best Book Ever Written…Bar None <p> First of all, one has a very difficult problem in defining exactly what this compendium is. Is it a book, a poem, a history, an epic? Well, it is all of those and many more. The Anatomy of Melancholy is, without a doubt, the best book ever written, bar none. <p> It was compliled from all the books of the 17th century and is not really about melancholy, per se. It is, rather, Robert Burtons view of mankind and mankinds condition. All mankind. And all conditions. It is about melancholia, sure, but it is about everything else as well. Melancholia was just Burtons excuse to write about everything under the sun in a strikingly original way and then have the nerve to remind us that there is nothing new under the sun. This is a book filled with both endless quotes and endless quotable material and, to the surprise of many, it is a comic masterpiece. Perhaps the comic masterpiece. Burton chose to publish this book as having been written by Democritus Junior, and if that doesnt give you a hint regarding the humor that follows, then not much will. <p> If you like good literature, youll love this book. If you like psychology, youll love this book. If you want to seem pretentious, you need this book. Mostly, however, this is a book for people who love words. Burton may have seemed like a raving madman to some, but he was a man obsessed with a love for the English language…and it shows. <p> The Anatomy of Melancholy wasnt meant to be read from the first page to the last; I have never met anyone who did that and one would have to be more than a little mad to even try. Just pick up the book. Open it to any page. You may find lists, digressions, bits of 17th century prose, quotes, much Latin. Whatever you find, it is sure to please if you only give it half a chance. <p> The Anatomy of Melancholy is definitely the desert island book. Dont go without. That would be a terrible mistake. <p> Be warned: this dense and brilliant book is extremely addicting. Once you start leafing through the pages and writing down your favorite passages, youll find you never want to be without the book. And, as youll come to see, that wont be such a bad thing at all.

A unique biographical review of the global contributors to field of anatomy Knowledge of human anatomy has not always been an essential component of medical education and practice.

Chapters organized by geographic region, including Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, review the lives of those that helped shape our current understanding of the human form.
