Resumen

An Economist Book of the Year, 2001. In the 18th century, a debate ensued over the French naturalist Buffon#s contention that the New World was in fact geologically new. Historians, naturalists, and philosophers clashed over Buffon#s view. This book maintains that the #dispute# was also a debate over historical authority: upon whose sources and facts should naturalists and historians reconstruct the history of the New World and its people. In addressing this question, the author offers a strikingly novel interpretation of the Enlightenment.
