The Mystery of Things

A.C. Grayling

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Philosophy

Reissue.

'Human genius has done much, and promises much, in the way of removing the mystery from many things in our world; at the same time it recognises and honours the mystery in things too.'

In this new collection A.C Grayling extends the range of his previous two books to show how much understanding people can gain about themselves and their world by reflecting on the lessons offered by science, the arts (including literature) and history.

Covering subjects as diverse as Jane Austen's Emma, The Rosetta Stone, Shakespeare, the Holocaust, Quantum physics, Galileo and even alien abductions, A.C Grayling's latest collection is a rich source for reflection and contemplation over the mysteries of life.
