De triplici vita is one of the most influential medical astrology books of the late 15th century. Written by Marsilio Ficino, the work dispenses advice for living a long and productive life and also elucidates Ficino's Neoplatonic ideas, which were a hybrid of Platonic doctrine, eastern mysticism, and Christianity.
