Description
There are four men whose life's work helped free science from the straitjacket of religion, posits Jack Repcheck. Three—Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, and Charles Darwin—are widely heralded for their breakthroughs. The third, James Hutton, is rarely mentioned, yet he profoundly changed our understanding of the earth, its age, and its dynamic forces. The Scottish gentleman farmer's close study of his own tract of land led him to a theory that refuted Bible-based claims that the Earth was only 6,000 years old. Repcheck—also the author of Copernicus' Secret—tells the story not only of Hutton, but also of Scotland and the Scottish Enlightenment, including such greatest thinkers of the age as David Hume, Adam Smith, and James Watt.
