Versified dinner parties; the cultural significance of wild fruit; a dreamlike trip to Russia on the eve of the breakup of the Soviet Union; parallel lines in Euclid's geometry; grotesque episodes in recent Jewish history; the role of religion in the 17th-century origins of modern science: all these and many other topics are explored in essays, half of them never published before, composed during a long scholarly career.
