The Art of Memory (Frances Yates: Selected Works)

Buy
"Once in a very great while, historical scholarship produces a book which makes one immediately begin re-thinking many of one's major suppositions about the thought systems of the past. Professor Yates has given us such a book."--Norman D. Hinton, The Modern Schoolman

The Art of Memory is the classic study of how people learned to retain vast stores of knowledge before the invention of the printed page. In it, Frances A. Yates traces the art of memory from its treatment by Greek orators, through its Gothic transformations in the Middle Ages, to the occult forms it took in the Renaissance, and finally to its use in the seventeenth century. This book, the first to relate the art of memory to the history of culture as a whole, was revolutionary when it first appeared and continues to mesmerize readers with its lucid and revelatory insights.
