More than a great painter, sculptor, and engineer, Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the most profound and inquisitive thinkers of his-or any other-age. The Wisdom of Leonardo da Vinci unveils the master's deepest thoughts and musings on a wide variety of topics, from art to anatomy, from science to the soul. Culled from dozens of Leonardo's coded diaries and unpublished manuscripts, these writings include opinions, scientific analysis, and speculations that were considered unconventional, dangerous, even heretical in Renaissance Italy. Leonardo reveals his secret thoughts on spiritual possession, alchemy, tyranny and freedom, nature, the biblical Great Flood, fossils, creativity, painting and poetry, knowledge and reason, and more.
