The Dawn of Science

by Thanu Padmanabhan | 02 May 2019
Category: Popular Science
This lucid and captivating book takes the reader back to the early history of all the sciences, starting from antiquity and ending roughly at the time of Newton - covering the period which can legitimately be called the "dawn" of the sciences. Each of the 24 chapters focuses on a particular and significant development in the evolution of science, and is connected in a coherent way to the others to yield a smooth, continuous narrative. The at-a-glance diagrams showing the "When" and "Where" give a brief summary of what was happening at the time, thereby providing the broader context of the scientific events highlighted in that chapter. Embellished with colourful photographs and illustrations, and "boxed" highlights scattered throughout the text, this book is a must-read for everyone interested in the history of science, and how it shaped our world today.
