Description
Seventeenth-century England was racked by civil war, plague, and fire—a world dominated by superstition and ignorance. But then a series of meetings of "natural philosophers" in Oxford and London saw the beginning of a new method of thinking based on proof and experiment. The author of In Search of Schrödinger's Cat, The Birth of Time, and The Origins of the Future offers a gripping, colorful account of this unparalleled time of discovery through portraits of the founding fathers of modern Western science, Britain's Royal Society.

"The master of popular science writing ... [John] Gribbin reveals the complex relationships between science and the politics of the day to show us how si much was achieved against all the odds."—Scotsman
