    How did the world begin? Where do we come from? How do works of art emerge from our imagination? In an extensive survey of cultural history, ranging from the Bible and Greek myth to the present day, Conrad investigates the mysteries of creation, the demise of the Christian God, the many ways in which artists and thinkers have taken over the role of 'creators', and the impulse which drives writers, painters and musicians to question the limits placed on thoughts and dreams.
