The Search for Wonder in An Age of DoubtBook - 1999
A search for human values and meaning at the millennium. This is both a brilliant travel narrative and an intellectual adventure story. Mixing philosophical speculation with conversations about the food, art and architecture of France, the author explores a medieval mindset deeply informed by an intimate collection to the universe. From Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, to the Cathars, Joan of Arc and Galileo, this book examines some of our deepest assumptions about the nature of human being. It is very much a book for our age.
