Uniwersytet Adama Mickiewicza, Poznaniu Instytut, Kulturoznawstwa Wielowymiarowość Tajemnicy W Monadzie, Johna Dee
In my article I will show possible meanings of the idea of the secret. Hieroglyph-ical monad is considered here as a text with multiple layers of reference: from absolute transcendence to magical performativity. There will be presented interpretations arguing that Dee's treatise could be interpreted on all levels: religious, magical, and mystical, combining secretness as a strategy of rhetoric and as part of a discouragement to those who are not allowed to read it.
