The Art of Science: A Natural History of Ideas
Description:
`Hamblyn's is by far the most relaxed, sunny and domesticated of these books. In an afterword, he writes that he had been surprised to discover how much attention he had paid to "the science of everyday life, from wet towels to coffee stains, via rusty nails housework, boredom, and the barcode on the back of this book". In this way, the science emerges naturally, and reflectively from our familiar world. The prevailing mood of The Art of Science is that which Italo Calvino divined in Lucretius: a lightness of touch . . . Hamblyn teaches creative writing at Birkbeck, and the literary angle adds a great deal: from passages in novels to tips on how to write popular science. Even anti-science gets a look in, at its most extreme in DH Lawrence's notorious rant: "The Universe is dead for us ... knowledge has killed the sun ..." On the last page, Hamblyn quotes Richard Feynman's riposte to this all-too-prevalent attitude: science "only adds. I don't see how it subtracts". And Hamblyn's book adds enormously to the pleasure that there is in science.' --Saturday's Guardian'Hamblyn... showcases not only readable translations of key scientific ideas but situates those ideas in their cultural and historical context. The hundred-odd pieces selected either reflect the situation in which a moment of scientific understanding took place or reveal the personalities of the scientists involved.' --Independent`Hamblyn . . . showcases not only readable translations of key scientific ideas but situates those ideas in their cultural and historical context . . . the strength of the collection lies in the surprises from among the contributions made by amateurs.' --Independent
