Abstract: Henry Vaughan: The Man in His Time Wanting to find out more about himself and the world he finds himself in, Man has searched differently in each age. Some generations have looked for an explanation in science, some in religion; but the seventeenth century was able to make a synthesis of mind and matter and in the process develop a new type of thought described as metaphysical. The men who followed this way of looking at the world combined reason and intellect with emotion and passion, and wrote of a world that few men had seen before, a world of both heart and head.
