This monograph evaluates Aubrey's intellectual temper and accomplishments, and measures his posthumous reputation against that evaluation. His non-biographical works are studied against their contemporary background, and "Brief Lives" is critically examined and compared with other biographies of the 17th century. This work assesses him as combining the modern scientific view of the mid-17th century with the superstition of the medieval and Renaissance past.
