Through the millennia, the moon has aroused the interest of scientists, philosophers, theologians, and artists. This erudite but accessible account surveys human thought through the ages to show that even in the 21st century, our modern image of the moon retains connotations far beyond its matter-of-fact identity as a cold, rocky sphere. Originally published in hardcover in 1999.
