Cartea gratuită de la UCP

Cum s-a transformat curiozitatea din viciu (Eva, Pandora) în virtute? Istoria curiozității este, de fapt, istoria științei, a cum a devenit acceptabil să întrebi pe oricine, despre orice referitor la lumea noastră.

“Curiosity is a wonderful book that revises popular assumptions about the Scientific Revolution with great wit and insight.… Ball wants to retain the excitement and fervor that drove scientific curiosity from the seventeenth century onwards and celebrate the ‘love, the awe, the passion’ that scientists feel but repress in their research because of the curious history of scientific experimentation. In this, Ball distinguishes himself as unquestionably one of our finest—and most curious—writers on the history and future of science.”—Literary Review

“Curiosity emerges as a first-rate popular account of how science in Europe began. Accurate, witty, and reliable, the book ably shows modern readers how we got to be modern. Philip Ball adeptly sketches the virtuoso sensibility: a combination of intellectual nosiness and experimental dexterity plus the belief that, as he writes, ‘to understand everything, you could start from anywhere.’”—Wall Street Journal
