Moon and the Western Imagination
Scott L. Montgomery (au)
The Moon has presented a variety of faces to philosophers, writers, artists, and scientists for nearly three millennia. Scott Montgomery has drawn on a wide array of sources that illustrate mankind’s changing concept of this heavenly body -- from classical antiquity to the dawn of modern science. Publishers Weekly says: “Montgomery stitches a story of religious allegory, scientific inquiry, and artistic insight . . . Beneath the easy-reading style lies a work of substance that is a narrow but penetrating contribution to cultural history.” Choice says: “A work of painstaking scholarship . . . . It is fascinating to see how each era viewed the moon in terms of the religious and philosophical climate of the period.” Over 100 illustrations.
