Summary
Philosophy begins with wonder, according to Plato and Aristotle. Yet Plato and Aristotle did not expand a great deal on what precisely wonder is. Does this fact alone not raise curiosity in us as to why this passion or concept is important? What is wonder's role in science, philosophy, or theology except to end thinking or theorizing as soon as one begins? The primary purpose of this book is to show how seventeenth- and eighteenth-century developments in natural theology, metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, and the philosophy of science resulted in a complex history of the passion of wonder--a history in which the elements of continuation, criticism, and reformulation are equally present. Philosophy Begins in Wonder provides the fi rst historical overview of wonder and changes the way we see modern Europe. It is intended for readers who are curious--who wonder -- about how modern philosophy and science were born
