“The need for scientific knowledge springs from a natural human curiosity to understand our world, but also from a genuine desire to help humanity. The great scientific discoveries have given us incredible knowledge about the natural world, have improved our lives through new technologies, and have taught us a great deal about the capabilities and the limitations of our human perspective.”
In The Mind of Science: From Aristotle to Einstein, author Michael Sidiropoulos takes you on a thought-provoking journey through the history of science from a philosophical standpoint.
Beginning with the calculation of the size of the earth by Eratosthenes, chief librarian at the Library of Alexandria, Sidiropoulos for the most part avoids the use of mathematical formulas as he explores the ideas, and ideals, that lie behind scientific advancement throughout the ages.
It’s a fascinating voyage that will enrich you with a greater awareness of the interplay between science and philosophy—how they’re similar, how they’re different, and how they complement each other.
