Summary
The Romantic imagination was inspired, not alienated, by scientific advances. Focusing on prominent British scientists of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, including William Herschel and his sister Caroline, Humphrey Davy, and Joseph Banks, Holmes ́ argues that their discoveries helped establish a new paradigm of Romantic science that saw the universe as vast, dynamic and full of marvels, and celebrated mankind ́s power to not just describe but transform Nature. 2008
