A remarkable exploration of how shadows have forever fascinated us: their extraordinary hold on our fears & imagination; their importance to astronomers, scientists, philosophers, & artists; their influence on myth & religious beliefs. In this unique study -- combining history, science, & anthropology -- Robert Casati discusses the famous & the obscure who, armed with imagination & creativity, struggled with the concept of shadow & provided us with explanations of & uses for our constant companion. Among those who were part of this “shadow club” were Eratosthenes & Galileo, ancient Arab astronomers & modern mathematicians, classical Greek painters & Leonardo da Vinci.
