"I'm an Hermetic Philosopher."

Hermeticism is a quasi-religious belief system based on the writings of Hermes Trismegistus. Dee is asserting that he follows a more ordered, intellectual magical system, ratherĀ than being the generic, chaos-orientedĀ "black magician" the other scientists accuse him of being.
