This book presents a series of essays, each specially written by an expert in the area, which focus on the role of Romantic philosophy and ideology in the sciences, and on the role of the sciences in Romantic literature. The contributions are designed to give a systematic coverage of the whole field. They are written at a popular level; they are well illustrated; and are accompanied by suggestions for further reading suitable for undergraduates and others. Divided into four sections under the titles 'Romanticism', 'Sciences of the Organic', 'Sciences of the Inorganic', and 'Literature and the Sciences', the book discusses various themes, movements and theories, as well as individual scientists and writers (including Schelling, von Humboldt, Goethe, Ritter, Davy, Oersted, Kleist, Coleridge, and Buchner). There is an editorial introduction prefiguring some of the concerns of the books. This original collection, designed to provide a balance of literary and scientific interests for students in both humanistic and scientific disciplines and occupies an important place in a previously under-explored field.
