Arthur Koestler's notable heritage of humanity's altering imaginative and prescient of the universe
In this masterly synthesis, Arthur Koestler cuts throughout the sterile contrast among 'sciences' and 'humanities' to convey to existence the entire historical past of cosmology from the Babylonians to Newton. He indicates how the tragic break up among technological know-how and faith arose and the way, specifically, the trendy world-view changed the medieval world-view within the medical revolution of the 17th century. He additionally presents brilliant and sensible pen-portraits of a string of serious scientists and makes transparent the position that political bias and subconscious prejudice performed of their creativity.
