525 pages, Illus, figs, maps
Science, as Charles Singer points out in his preface, having come to control and direct industry, is now rapidly and manifestly transforming the very face of the earth and the lot of its living inhabitants, whether human, animal, or plant. What is the story behind this immense increase of scientific activity? Has science always been so powerful? And what does `science' mean? Dr. Singer answers these questions by presenting a history of science - its developments, its protagonists, and the philosophy behind it. From the Stone Age to the twentieth century, from ancient Egypt to modern Europe, from astrology to microbiology, this is the complex and extraordinary story of man's curiosity.
