The Scientific Outlook
Bertrand RussellISBN: 041524997X;
The Scientific Outlook provides accessible and illuminating insights into Russell's thinking about the promise and threat of scientific progress. He offers brilliant discussions of many of the major figures in the history of science, including Aristotle, Galileo, Newton and Darwin and considers three questions fundamental to an understanding of science: the nature and scope of scientific knowledge, the increased power over nature that science affords, and the changes in the lives of human beings that result from new forms of science.
