The book, "Giordano Bruno", is bibliography, written by J. Lewis Mclntyre, an Anderson Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen. This book covers the story of Giordano Bruno, a visionary, an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, cosmological theorist, and Hermetic occultist. He is known for his cosmological theories, which conceptually extended the then novel Copernican model. He proposed that the stars were distant suns surrounded by their own planets, and he raised the possibility that these planets might foster life of their own, a cosmological position known as cosmic pluralism. He also insisted that the universe is infinite and could have no "center."
