Hans Christian Ørsted : reading nature's mind by Dan Ch Christensen( )

"Hans Christian Orsted (1777-1851) is of great importance as a scientist and philosopher far beyond the borders of Denmark and his own time. At the centre of an international network of scholars, he was instrumental in founding the world picture of modern physics. Orsted was the physicist who brought Kant's metaphysics to fruition. In 1820 his discovery of electro-magnetism, a phenomenon that could not possibly exist according to his adversaries, changed the course of research in physics. It inspired Michael Faraday's experiments and discovery of the adverse effect, magneto-electric induction. The two physical phenomena were later described in mathematical equations by J.C. Maxwell. Together these discoveries constitute the prerequisites for the overwhelming development of modern technology. But Orsted was also one of the cultural leaders and organizers of the Danish Golden Age (together with Grundtvig, Kierkegaard, and Hans-Christian Andersen, his protege), and made significant contributions to aesthetics, philosophy, pedagogy, politics, and religion. Orsted remarkably bridged the gap between science, the humanities, and the arts."--Publisher's description

Hans Christian Ørsted (1777-1851) fik betydning som videnskabsmand og tænker langt ud over Danmarks grænser og sin egen tid. Internationalt stod han i centrum af et netværk, der lagde grunden til den moderne fysiks verdensbillede. Men han var også en af den danske Guldalders ledende kulturpersonligheder og havde afgørende indflydelse inden for områder som æstetik, filosofi, pædagogik, politik og religion, bl.a. som redaktør, mangeårig sekretær i Videnskabernes Selskab og medstifter af og direktør for Polyteknisk Læreanstalt. Naturens tankelæser er den første samlede skildring af H.C. Ørsteds liv og rigt facetterede værk, der ikke blot fører læseren ind i hans naturvidenskabelige univers, men også i et letforståeligt sprog fortæller historien om H.C. Ørsteds vej fra apotekersøn i Rudkøbing, til han allerede som ung student gjorde op med de etablerede naturvidenskabelige teorier og nåede frem til et nyt og dynamisk natursyn, der førte frem til hans banebrydende opdagelse af elektromagnetismen, som hans modstandere hævdede ikke kunne eksistere. Læseren kommer også tæt på H.C. Ørsted som ægtefælle og far, hans hidtil hemmeligholdte forlovelseshistorie, Ørstedfamiliens dydsmønstre og sorte får og hans store hjælpsomhed over for yngre forskere og kunstnere, ikke mindst H.C. Andersen, hvis eventyr er gennemsyret af venskabet med Store Hans Christian. Bogen er baseret på et stort kildemateriale, bl.a. Ørsteds omfattende korrespondance med familie og kolleger, politiske forbindelser og samtidens store personligheder, og rummer mere end trehundrede illustrationer
