Lesson Fourteen : First steps to understanding emblems as a whole - different types of emblems.
Lesson Fifteen : A first attempt at reading some emblems.
Lesson Sixteen : Further exercise in reading an emblem.
Lesson Seventeen : How not to interpret an alchemical emblem.
Lesson Eighteen : Reading an emblem in harmony with the author's intentions.
Lesson Nineteen : A short glimpse at sequences.
Lesson Twenty : The alchemical process seen as a whole.
Lesson Twenty One : Individual alchemical processes.
Lesson Twenty Two : Reading complex emblems.
Lesson Twenty Three : Reading an emblem from within itself.
Lesson Twenty Four : Conclusion.
The lessons are self-contained, though it will be best if students read more widely and also built up their own library of alchemical emblems on which to develop their work. This is not a correspondence course and students should not expect me to be able to write to them individually on particular matters, as regrettably I just do not have time to enter into individual correspondence.
