The first tarot book I read was Dummett's "Il Mondo e l'Angelo". Recently, I have re-read a few chapters and I enjoy the book even more now (knowing something about tarot history) than I did when I first read it. I have been very lucky to meet tarot through the words of such an exceptional scholar. Sometimes I think that “tarot history” is an oxymoron: a foolish game like tarot is incompatible with serious historical science. Dummett's work demonstrates that this is not the case. If I cannot speak of tarot in a meaningful way, the problem is not in the subject (which, in spite of its name, is all but foolish).
