Not only did Leonardo subscribe to the idea--first conceived by the Roman architect Vitruvius--that the human body was a microcosm geometrically aligned with the divine circle and the earthly square, Lester reveals that by studying the body's proportions and anatomy, the artist also felt he could obtain a godlike perspective of the world's makeup. "Da Vinci's Ghost "captures a pivotal time in the history of Western thought, when the Middle Ages was giving way to the Renaissance, when art and science and philosophy all seemed to be converging as one, and when it seemed possible, at least to Leonardo da Vinci, that a single human being might embody--and even understand--the nature of everything.
