Great Essays in Science Summary


Great Essays in Science by Edited by Martin Gardner

Martin Gardner's entertaining anthology of writing on science brings together a host of famous names from science and literature including Einstein and Freud, R. L. Stevenson and G. K. Chesterton, Isaac Asimov and Stephen Jay Gould. The lively collection covers subjects as diverse as the laws of physics, logic, the bee, the sea, and the beautiful woman, and Gardner's intention is to spread before the reader a feast of great writing - essays that have `something important to say about science and say it forcibly and well.' Martin Gardner is well known as a writer on mathematics, science, and philosophy, and his entertaining and perceptive commentary, along with explanatory and biographical sketches, makes this book not only a rich collection of good reading but also an informal history of the people and ideas that have shaped our culture and moulded our everyday lives. This book is intended for popular science readers, those interested in the literature of science.
