0.00 CHF tax incl.

Is she good or evil? Blind, deaf, or simply indifferent? Spinning the wheel of human destiny, Fate makes kings and paupers. From Antiquity to the Renaissance, art and philosophy have never ceased to question this power, divinity or allegory, and to remodel her to suit ideologies and aesthetics. How does Fate relate to Luck, Chance and Destiny? And what role is there for her in a world ruled by divine providence? Where does the wheel attribute come from? What have poetry and art added to an originally scholarly notion? These are just some of the questions thrown up by this book, and which it intends to answer.
