The ascent of man by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

118 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 4,482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ascent of Man is nothing less than a full-scale history of science developed from the acclaimed thirteen-part BBC television series written by Jacob Bronowski, and traces the development of science as an expression of the special gifts that characterize man and that have made him unique among animal species. It journeys back through intellectual history in order to find 'the great monuments of human invention.' The author's informal history ranges throughout most of the western world, reaching into such out-of-the way places as Easter Island, Machu Picchu, Newton's library and Gauss's observatory, the Alhambra and the caves of Altamira. In each location, Bronowski considers the qualities of thought and imagination that compelled man first to analyze the physical world, and then to explore the invisible laws and structures above and beneath its surface. "Man ascends by discovering the fullness of his own gifts....what he creates on the way are monuments to the stages in his understanding of nature and of self."" --Amazon.com

The Western intellectual tradition, from Leonardo to Hegel by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

115 editions published between 1960 and 2001 in 6 languages and held by 2,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is intellectual history in the largest sense, not confined to ideas in one or a few fields, but covering the whole spectrum of Western intellectual activity during the four centuries when the world was transformed from medieval to modern. An important feature of the book is its stress on the interplay of ideas from different fields. In particular, the authors give more attention than is usual to the ideas of science, to the movements of literary style, and to the innovations in the arts. This is a profound and evocative history of the life of ideas in their full setting: of men, of groups of men, of events

The identity of man by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

58 editions published between 1963 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the impact of science on our sense of self and the need to revaluate ethics in light of the scientific perspective. As both a practicing scientist and an author of books on poetry, the author makes interesting connections between the uses of the imagination in science and in literature. Whereas science creates experiments to test hypotheses about the outside world, he notes that literature also provides "experiments" in poetry and prose, allowing readers to experience what it means to be fully human and relating the individual's inner life to that of every human being
