Deals with the new era of scientific inquiry that started around 1800 with the study of the properties of electricity. Reviews advances in the study of magnetism and its relation to electricity, light, and subatomic particles. Also discusses the confusion between science and technology and the layman's essentially commonsense Newtonian view of the world while the scientific world is actually relative and uncertain.
