For Berli, the Romantics set in train a vast, unparalleled revolution in humanity's view of itself. They destroyed the traditional notion of objective truth in ethicsm with incalculable, all-pervasive results. In his unscripted tour de force Berlin surveys the myriad attempts to define romanticism, distils its essence, traces its development, and shows how its legacy permeates our outlook today.Hide synopsis

This book is intellectual history at its best. Sir Isaiah Berlin, one of the foremost cultural scholars of the 20th century, traces the history of Romanticism from its German roots in religious quietism to the 20th century.
