schema:description"While the physical sciences are a continuously evolving source of technology and of understanding about our world, they have become so specialized and rely on so much prerequisite knowledge that for many people today the divide between the sciences and the humanities seems even greater than it was when C.P. Snow delivered his famous 1959 lecture, "The Two Cultures." In this work, the author, a Hungarian scientist and educator succeeds in bridging this chasm by describing the experimental methods and theoretical interpretations that created scientific knowledge, from ancient times to the present day, within the cultural environment in which it was formed. It explores the interplay of science and the humanities to convey the wonder and excitement of scientific development throughout the ages. This book contains excerpts from original resources, explanations, and insight, revealing the historical progress of science and inviting readers into a dialogue with the great scientific minds that shaped our current understanding of physics."@en
