Exploring Enlightenment attitudes toward things and their relation to human subjects, this collection offers a geographically wide-ranging perspective on what the eighteenth century looked like beyond British or British-colonial borders. In highlighting trends, fashions, and cultural imports of truly global significance, the contributors celebrate the logic of serendipity that transforms the object into some-thing else when it is placed in a new locale.
