Summary
In this wide-ranging, panoramic examination, former Librarian of Congress and esteemed historian Daniel J. Boorstin traces man's insatiable need to know. Boorstin also considers the obstacles to discovery and the illusion that knowledge can also put in our way-covering time, the earth, the seas, nature, and society. In this engaging, witty, and thought-provoking overview, Boorstin gathers and analyzes stories of man's profound quest to understand his world and the cosmos
