Conjectura Cabbalistica

More (1614-1687) was a Cambridge Platonist who was "notable as a rationalist theologian who tried to use the details of the mechanical philosophy, as developed by René Descartes, Robert Boyle and others, to establish the existence of immaterial substance, or spirit and, therefore, God." (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Conjectura Cabbalistica, notionally based on the Jewish Cabbala, contains More's digressions on the extinction of the sun, conflagration of the world, genies, animal spirits, and Thomas Hobbes.
