About this book

A fascinating book in which the author argues that science is not a natural unfolding of human potential, but the invention of a particular culture, Greece, in a particular historical period.

this book is a healthy antidote to all the deconstructing of the remarkable achievements of Western science that is going on in modern academic life. Harold Morowitz, Nature
