The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history's most successful journeys: 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured.
Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di Dimensions of Scientific Thought
- Bill Pierson
Not what I thought
I was expecting a history of scientific thought. There is some of that but there is as much about relativistic arguments within science. These arguments appear to try and persuade the reader regarding what is knowable and limitations in science. Then, the book concludes by affirming that science is responsible for the advances in civilization. So I was left confused on the position of the author.
