Beschreibung

Only recently have scholars begun to note Cavendish's references to 'God,' 'spirits,' and the 'rational soul,' and little has been published in this regard. This volume addresses that scarcity by taking up the theological threads woven into Cavendish's ideas about Nature, matter, magic, governance, and social relations, with special attention given to Cavendish's literary oeuvre. The essays enhance our understanding of Cavendish's intriguing - and sometimes brilliant - contributions to debates about God's place in the scientific cosmos.

Zusammenfassung
Only recently have scholars begun to note Margaret Cavendishs references to 'God,' 'spirits,' and the 'rational soul,' and little has been published in this regard. This volume addresses that scarcity by taking up the theological threads woven into Cavendishs ideas about nature, matter, magic, governance, and social relations, with special attention given to Cavendishs literary and philosophical works.Reflecting the lively state of Cavendish studies, God and Nature in the Thought of Margaret Cavendish allows for disagreements among the contributing authors, whose readings of Cavendish sometimes vary in significant ways; and it encourages further exploration of the theological elements evident in her literary and philosophical works. Despite the diversity of thought developed here, several significant points of convergence establish a foundation for future work on Cavendishs vision of nature, philosophy, and God. The chapters collected here enhance our understanding of the intriguing-and sometimes brilliant-contributions Cavendish made to debates about Gods place in the scientific cosmos.
