Review

One of the most intellectually enriching interdisciplinary studies of art that has ever been written. It combines breadth of learning with lucidity of thought and expression, in a way that should engage the interest of anyone with a systematic interest in the arts-be it scientific, or from the viewpoint of the humanities. * Nature *
