Summary
Mr. Nye makes vividly clear the period's underlying patterns of thought, indicating the profound influence of European Romanticism, although American experience itself precluded the Old World's pessimism; how new discoveries in science were gradually wrecking the grand Newtonian scheme of the universe; and how all these changes affected religion, manners, education and the arts
