Sažetak
Philosopher and physician Georgius Raguseus (Dubrovnik, after 1550–Padua, 1622) was professor of Aristotelian natural philosophy at the University of Padua. His letters, collected and published in book format under the title Epistolae mathematicae seu de divinatione, were written in the period from 1600 until 1619, the addressees being various influential contemporaries. In these letters, Raguseus argues against divinatory astrology, and also deals with the questions of the origin of astrology and relationship between astrology and medicine. He exemplifies a process of rationalization, which puts in question all superstitious elements of astrology that finally leads to putting in question astrology as such. However, he still retains qualitates occultae as basic astrology premises, by which he attempts to explain the occurrence of individual species on Earth. In my paper I will present Raguseus arguments against astrology.
