Driven by an unquenchable thirst, the human spirit seeks an explanation of the world. In this fascinating study, a noted historian of science traces the course of the ceaseless yearning for answers across two and a half millennia and chronicles, in simple form, the development of the idea of a rational and interconnected material world. This account begins with the earliest recordings of true science among the Ionian Greeks and proceeds to detail the development of unitary systems of thought among Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, and others. Examinations of the science of imperial Rome -- includin

Newton by Peter Ackroyd( Book )

12 editions published in 1938 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I have long been impressed by the fact that Isaac Newton, besides being the greatest of scientific geniuses, was also one of the most singular and fascinating characters of which we have any record. This Life of Isaac Newton is an attempt to exemplify this point of view. The conception of Newton here worked out was first published by me in the Isaac Newton bi-centenary article which appeared in the Times Literary Supplement in 1927"--Prefatory note

On anatomical procedures; the later books by Galen( Book )

41 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Galen was probably the greatest medical writer of antiquity and certainly the most prolific. His Anatomical Procedures (c. 200 CE) emobides the results of a lifetime of practical research; it is largely based on verbatim notes of lectures delivered during actual demonstrations of dissection. The work comprises fifteen books, of which only the first eight-and-a-halft have survived in the original Greek. An Arabic translation of the complete work has survived, however, and this has made possible the translation of the final six-and-a-half books (parts of book 9 and books 10-15). Duckworth's translation was originall made from a German translation of 1906, but for this 1962 edition it was revised by Lyons, working directly from the Arabic text, with the co-operation of Towers. Modern names for the parts of the body are inserted in brackets, and an anatomical index is supplied."--Back cover
