Sintesi dell'editore

Many believe the "Middle Ages" lacked progress, yet during this time algebra was developed, and Islamic scholars preserved and extended Greek thought (which otherwise was lost). Metallurgy (and its speculative counterpart, alchemy) led to a deeper understanding of materials. These advances set the stage for the Renaissance and a scientific revolution.

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.

An interesting read about the not-so-dark ages

Medieval Science will blow the dust off of a few of those cob-webbed corners left over from everything you've been taught to believe about the dark ages. Not only is the work interesting in it's own right, as an exposition about science in an age where I was taught there was nothing but dirt, death and bad dental hygiene, but also interesting because, through it, I discovered greater and deeper links between East, Middle East and West, far more and far more interesting than just those my (north) American education would have me understand. AND... it's a good read too!

enjoyed it, a littls to much performance for me,

good content. a little over performed for me. I had to rewind frequently to understand. I would have enjoyed it just as well without the change ups in early English dialecs.

Very Interesting

This is a brief, but enlightening factual compilation of individual accounts of science, invention, and religion during the medieval period.

Antiquated and outdated, choose other

laughably outdated and biased, great narration and performance but could not save source material. Heavily biased in favor of antiquated views on the source of several technologies and strays far from the topic at several points

The roots of modern science

This is an outstanding presentation on the sources of modern science.
It well depicts the transition from mere belief to reasoning and experimental science. Of special note is the presaging of Einstein's Theory of Relativity.
