A C Grayling explores the story of seventeenth-century Europe and the birth of the modern mind. He argues that it was a time of creativity unparalleled in history before or since, and reveals how a fundamentally new way of perceiving the world emerged, as reason rose to prominence over tradition and the rights of the individual took centre stage in philosophy and politics, a shift that would define Western thought for centuries to come.
