Meh. An extremely wide ranging intellectual history, focusing on the relationship between 'world' and 'man.' If you're into laundry lists of quotes, followed by a one paragraph summary of those quotes that takes no notice whatsoever of the immense divergence between them, then this is for you. Brague is obviously well read, but this should have been an essay in some right-wing French weekly, rather than a book. The real flaw here, though, is the unbearable way he longs for a world in which the ' ...more

Ferry speaks about this book in the introduction of his book on Kant. It is a kind of history of the philosophy but seen by the prism of the conception of the cosmos by men.
Really I had pleasure to read it because It permit to me to understand some relation in philosophical thoughts.
I like to read phylosophical book because they calm the soul, this one particulary.

Revue excellente des origines de la cosmologie médiévale, qui a émergé comme une fusion de la cosmologie de Platon dans le Timée et des idées bibliques. Selon cette image du monde, la nature était un exemple à imiter d'un point de vue éthique.

The adage "eschew obfuscation" applies here. Much repetition and tenuous and tedious elaboration.

Really good. Brague is careful, thoughtful, and deep. His command of the primary sources is stunning.

A unique work of scholarship depicting how we have and currently view the universe from the early history of the ancient world to the philosophical currents of the present. The text is richly annotated and excellently translated but densely academic. Very helpful in enriching one’s concept of cosmology saddled between the theological and philosophical traditions of Wisdom and the Cosmos and an emerging anthropology no longer based on the Greek, Medieval, or modernist models.
