Covers three themes: the epic struggle between the scientist and nature; the distilling effects of the struggle on the scientist; and the emergence from this struggle of symbolic mathematics, the purified language necessary to decode nature's secrets.
In his short book, Peter Pesic brilliantly conveys the meaning and motivation for the attempts of Gilbert, Kepler, Newton and the other virtuosi to read the Book of Nature and to decipher her secrets. - S. S. Schweber, American Scientist
