Abstract:

A Television series surveying the development of science. Part 3 traces chemistry from its beginning in Oriental metallurgy and alchemy to Dalton's atomic theory and man's knowledge of the elements Bronze craftsmen of China and the Samurai swordsmith of Japan are presented as early examples of the use of scientific principles. Part 4 traces the evolution of mathematics and explores the relationship of numbers to musical harmony, early astronomy and prespective in painting. Follows the spread of Greek ideas through the Islamic Empire, Moorish Spain and renaissance Europe. Part 5 highlights man's early study of astronomy in the Mediterranean region and the Ptolemaic and Copernican systems. Also explores the conflict between theology and science, the heresy trial of Galileo and the nature of censorship.
