This is an interesting book - a set of covering the intersection between art and science, and what is 'sublime'. Sublime, being a concept that is not too easily defined, and analyzed through philosophy, neuroscience, art, and all that. It's not exactly something that can be easily summarized.
Joel
A book of essays on the sublime in art and science - some insightful, some not - but Ian Greig's essay on Quantum Romanticism will set your mind on fire! This essay is worth the price of the entire book.
