In the seventeenth century, a vision arose which was to captivate the Western imagination for the next three hundred years: While fueling extraordinary advances in all fields of human endeavor, this vision perpetuated a hidden yet persistent agenda: Stephen Toulmin confronts that agenda—its illusions and its consequences for our present and future world. Rorty, University of Virginia "[Toulmin] has now tackled perhaps his most ambitious theme of all.
His aim is nothing less than to lay before us an account of both the origins and the prospects of our distinctively modern world. By charting the evolution of modernity, he hopes to show us what intellectual posture we ought to adopt as we confront the coming millennium.

Ranks with Dune and Norstrilia among the sweeping SF sagas that soar across galactic empires with a budding historian's eye for real tragedies that endlessly repeat themselves, and a Classics student's exposure to high tragedy like Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Virgil's Aeneas and Dido, Edgar Allan Poe's haunting poems Ulalume ; and especially Ovid's Orpheus and Eurydice, a tale of love and loss in the Underworld.
