Abstract: In a postmodern world turning away from the rigid categories of the past and "the univocal literalism" (Tarnas) of the modern mind, Loren Eiseley and Richard Wilbur bridge the schism between religion and science. Their essays and poems reinvigorate the romantic reconciliation between the mind and nature, subject and object, because, like Goethe, Wilbur and Eiseley see the human mind as a product of nature and the agent of nature's self revelation.
