Lost Enlightenment recounts how, between the years 800 and 1200, Central Asia led the world in trade and economic development, the size and sophistication of its cities, the refinement of its arts, and, above all, in the advancement of knowledge in many fields Central Asians achieved signal breakthroughs in astronomy, mathematics, geology, medicine, chemistry, music, social science, philosophy, and theology, among other subjects They gave algebra its name, calculated the earth s diameter with unprecedented precision, wrote the books that later defined European medicine, and penned some of the world s greatest poetry One scholar, working in Afghanistan, even predicted the existence of North and South America five centuries before Columbus Rarely in history has a impressive group of polymaths appeared at one place and time No wonder that their writings influenced European culture from the time of St Thomas Aquinas down to the scientific revolution, and had a similarly deep impact in India and much of Asia. Lost Enlightenment chronicles this forgotten age of achievement, seeks to explain its rise, and explores the competing theories about the cause of its eventual demise Informed by the latest scholarship yet written in a lively and accessible style, this is a book that will surprise general readers and specialists alike.
