Micro Mention "The Clockwork Universe"

Edward Dolnick

“The Clockwork Universe,” by Edward Dolnick, is about many things—but most of all, it’s about the beginning of true scientific thought. The transitions from alchemy's magic potions to verifiable and reproducible results were painful and anything but clear cut.

It's a fascinating book that describes the early days of the scientific method and the people who made this school of thought that gave us the modern world. That turning point for us as a species is immeasurable in its impact on our collective destiny. It's not at all clear yet if scientific progress will eventually lift us to the point of transcendence or merely give us greater tools to destroy ourselves.
