A New York Times Notable Book of the Year From the author of The Discoverers and The Creators, an incomparable history of man's essential question, Who are we?; and Why are we here?

Daniel J. Boorstin, the bestselling and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Americans, introduces us to some of the great pioneering seekers whose faith and thought have for centuries led man's search for meaning.

Moses sought truth in God above while Sophocles looked to reason. Thomas More and Machiavelli pursued truth through social change. And in the modern age, Marx and Einstein found meaning in the sciences. In this epic intellectual adventure story, Boorstin follows the great seekers from the heroic age of prophets and philosophers to the present age of skepticism as they grapple with the great questions that have always challenged man.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Benjamin | 10/8/2013

    " Pretty much a hodge-podge and chaotic, too little mention of the arts, not even a very good overview of Western intellectual history "

    " Not as good as The Discoverers or The Creators, but a great compliment to the series. "
