Description

In is new book, A. C. Grayling shows how much understanding people can gain about themselves and their world by reflecting on the lessons offered by science, the arts, and history. In the book's essays, Grayling illustrates what each area offers to thought, and in doing so, he covers subjects as wide-ranging as Jane Austen's Emma, The Rosetta Stone, Shakespeare, the Holocaust, and the brain.
