Lewis Thomas has been compared to a philosopher who uses the language of biology. With the medusa as a metaphor for life, he continues the exploration of the world he began in The Lives of a Cell. Among his offerings are essays on the genius of human error, cloning, disease and natural death, and an assessment of contemporary health care-all of it conveyed in an eloquent prose that is a delight to hear. Listening to this tape is like being fortunate enough to sit next to the most intelligent and witty guest at a dinner party.

Novalis is best known in history as the poet of early German Romanticism. However, this translation of Das Allgemeine Brouillon, or "Universal Notebook," finally introduces him to the English-speaking world as an extraordinarily gifted philosopher in his own right and shatters the myth of him as a mere daydreaming and irrational poet.

This Elibron Classics edition is a facsimile reprint of a 1880/94 edition by Macmillan and Co., London and New York.
The truth is that Dante fills the stream of human history from side to side. There have been greater poets, one or two; there have been greater thinkers, greater men of affairs; but of no other poet can it be said that he was the greatest political thinker of his age; of no other philosopher or theologian that he was its greatest poet.
