    The New York Public Library - New York Public Library
    In The Age of Wonder, Richard Holmes investigates the earliest ideas of deep time and space, and the explorers of "dynamic science," of an infinite, mysterious Nature waiting to be discovered. This age of exploration extended to great writers and poets as well as scientists, all creators relishing in moments of high exhilaration, boundary-pushing, and discovery.Holmes shows how great ideas and experiments -- both successes and failures—were born of singular and often lonely dedication, and how religious faith and scientific truth collide.
