THE VIEW FROM PLANET EARTH offers a fascinating, informed look at the greatest minds in history, from the classical Greeks to the present, and how their views of the cosmos have affected the evolution of our culture and values. In a lively and appealing narrative, Vincent Cronin skillfully blends history and biography to re-create the cosmology of each age through its key figures. Deftly woven throughout are the influences of astronomy and astrology, philosophy and poetry, folklore and religion. The result is a thorough analysis of mankind's preoccupation with the universe, a preoccupation that continues into our time.
