Transfiguring the Arts and Sciences: Knowledge and Cultural Institutions in the Romantic Age.
Praised as a highly readable book, and also highly illuminating. A cross-disiplinary study of the Romantic period's ideas about knowlege, and how new cultural institutions during that period were impacted. Poets, lecturers, moral philosophers, scientists, and literary critics including Coleridge, Godwin, Bentham, Davy, Wordsworth, Robinson, Shelley, Hunt, and others, responded to and participated in this shift in thinking. The result of this study is a shift in the way we think about categories of knowledge, both in the 19th century, and in our own time. A few pencil underlines, otherwise condition is Like New.
