Summary

Astrology was the first art to capitalize on "the powerful storytelling possibilities inherent in numerical data," writes Alexander Boxer in his new book, A Scheme of Heaven. In that regard, it was the predecessor of all modern big data disciplines. A Scheme of Heaven is an introduction to astrology that offers a handsome primer of the structures and concepts with which astrologers have tried to make our world of data manageable.
