Description: Daniel J. Boorstin, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Americans, is a spirited guide through humanity's three groat epochs of Seeking. First, the heroic Age of Prophets and Philosophers, who sought the truth from God above and reason within. Next, the Age of Communal Seeking -- where the quest for truth led outward, through the pursuit of a liberal society. Finally, the present age, the Age of Skepticism, in which meaning is found not in seeking's end, but in the act of seeking itself.

Moses sought truth in God above while Sophocles looked to reason. Thomas More and Machiavelli pursued truth through social change. And in the present age, Marx and Einstein found meaning in the sciences. In this epic intellectual adventure story, Boorstin follows the great seekers from the heroic age to the modern age as they grapple with the great questions that have always challenged humankind.
