Voyaging in Strange Seas by David Knight
In 1492 Columbus set out across the Atlantic; in 1776 American colonists declared their independence. Between these two events old authorities collapsed and a new, empirical worldview had arrived, focusing now on observation, experiment and mathematical reasoning. This book takes us along on a voyage of discovery that ushered in the modern age.
Explores the history of science, how scientists have sought to explain our incredible universe and how amazing scientific discoveries have been made.
