Dur­ing the En­light­en­ment era “nat­u­ral phi­los­o­phy” de­scribed the mixed bag of aca­demic dis­ci­plines used to un­ravel the mys­ter­ies of the world and the uni­verse. All man­ner of won­der­ful things re­lated to this quest were gath­ered at Har­vard Hall and dis­played in three rooms. The largest among them—the Phi­los­o­phy Cham­ber—has given rise to this in­cred­i­ble ex­hi­bi­tion at Har­vard Art Mu­se­ums. These ob­jects are as amaz­ing now as they were then.
