The identity of man by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 269 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
