In this refreshing work of history and scientific analysis, data scientist Alexander Boxer examines classical texts on astrology to examine its underlying scientific and mathematical framework. Boxer takes what he calls a series of deep dives into astrology, first tracing differe...nt applications of the system back to the ancient thinkers who developed them, and then putting these applications to the test using modern data sets and statistical science. At once critical, rigorous, and imaginative, A Scheme of Heaven re-contextualizes astrology as a vast, technological project-spanning continents and centuries-that was once at the cutting edge of scientific thought.
