Details

In this survey of 17th-century Europe AC Grayling asks how 'the greatest ever change in the mental outlook of humanity' took place during a period of tumultuous wars, civil strife and post-Reformation religious agonies. He argues that the failure of authority and the breakdown of systems of control enabled a new focus on individual rights and the rise of reason over tradition. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge and American-cut pages.
