Scientists : History of Science Told Through the Lives of Its Greatest Inventors - 02 edition

Scientists : History of Science Told Through the Lives of Its Greatest Inventors (ISBN10: 1400060133; ISBN13: 9781400060139)
ISBN13: 978-1400060139
ISBN10: 1400060133

Summary: In this new and landmark history of modern science, author and trained astrophysicist John Gribbin recounts the development of science over the past five-hundred years--as seen specifically through the lives and achievements of individual scientists.

John Gribbin has written extensively before on scientific subjects such as the theory of everything, the existence of reality, and Schrodinger's cat. However, in The Scientists, he shifts his focus to the peopl
e who have conceived and produced modern science's theories, inventions, and innovations. He examines the times in which these scientists lived and worked and how their particular contributions influenced the overall development and direction of scientific inquiry. In the process, Gribbin not only re-evaluates the significance of such venerable icons as Galileo, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Linus Pauling, but he also examines lesser lights whose stories have been undeservedly neglected.

Invaluable for those studying the history of science, and useful for those considering the impact of science on stages of history from the Renaissance and up to the present-day, The Scientists is ultimately a completely original, expansive, and nuanced survey of the most important scientific figures of the past half-millennium.
