Emanuel Swedenborg was born in 1688, and three hundred years on he is remembered mainly for his visionary insight and his theological writings. He was, however, a man with interests both worldly and other-worldly. His studies in physics, mineralogy, anatomy, psychology, and spiritualism all anticipated major modern discoveries well before their time. Arranged by subject and carefully explained, Swedenborg's work is finally accessible to the modern reader.
