Using ideas indebted to classical authorities like Archimedes, Wilkins defends the intellectual importance of tools usually associated with workmen. Wilkins describes ingenious, labour-saving applications of simple devices like screws and pulleys. The first part explains the .   This throws further light on the division of the Mathematicall Magick in its two books: Archimedes and Daedalus can be understood to exemplify complementary aspects of man's likeness to God, respectively reason and skill. 70 As we pointed out, the Archimedean wonders of the first book have become explicitly mathematical in nature — they are.
