Essays in Natural Philosophy


“"In these wide-ranging statements—which are so distinctive in style that a readercan almost hear the late Dr. Bronowski'svoice—this modern Renaissance man discusses, among other concepts: the logic ofnature, experiment and the mind; thecreative process and the reach of imagination. He explores the values of humanismand science, examines the principle of tolerance, looks down the corridors of time toenvision the fulfillment of man. As an interpreter of science and the continuing searchfor truth, Bronowski is almost without parallel in our time." Publishers Weekly
“"Most potential readers are admirers ofthe BBC series The Ascent of ManBronowski's enormously popular ventureinto television. They will be rewarded... bythe essays on the meaning and values ofscience, which show this master expositor athis eloquent best."Reading Bronowski is not as intense astalking to him, but there is enough of thatpower in these pages to light many lamps.Buy it, read it, and above all, argue with it." George A. Miller , Human Nature
“"Scientist, humanist, optimist, the late JacobBronowski in these essays explores thesingularity of humankind, the essence ofscience, and the idea of a life force antece-dent to nature.
