Per comprendere il pensiero di questo autore anonimo è sufficiente leggere il titolo e le prime righe della Preface, a pagina 3: The Tiranny of Superstition over the minds of mankind has certainly been more estensive, more lasting, and dispotick than any other empire in the world ever was. La disciplina astrologica è trattata assieme agli incantamenti e ai sogni, quali attività demoniache.
