Magic and Technology in Early Modern Europe
Written version of Anthony Grafton's 2002 lecture titled, “Magic and Technology in Early Modern Europe.”.In his lively and entertaining presentation, Grafton showed how “the notion of a mathematical or artificial magic” rose from the ancient art of natural magic, embodied in such things as prayers and talismans, to the complex optical, hydraulic and mechanical devices that “not only rivaled, but actually outdid, the creative powers of nature itself.” The machines and automata that emulated nature and the movement of living beings were so astonishing at first that the engineers had to seek independent authoritative testimony that the devices were the product of engineering skill, not occult practices.
