Enchantment is a profound human experience. When we encounter wonder, awe or amazement, that is enchantment. Enchantment can reveal profound truths, lead to deep values and become central to a life well-lived.

This unique book explores how enchantment plays out in a wide range of contexts — in love, art, religion and learning, in food and drink, and perhaps most significantly in our relationship with the natural world.

Patrick Curry argues that modernist attempts to undermine or dismiss enchantment as a delusion are not only misguided but dangerous, potentially leading to a disengagement with our world that could have disastrous consequences for our future on this planet.
