Format: Hardcover
Designing Experiments & Games Of Chance: The Unconventional Science Of Blaise Pascal by William R. Shea (Galileo Professor of History of Science at the University of Padua) is an informed and informative survey and analysis of the life's work of the talented mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher Blaise Pascal. Investigating Pascal's ingenious mathematical experiments, his philosophies of experimental science, his pioneering work concerning theories of probability, and more, Designing Experiments & Games Of Chance is an introduction into the lasting wisdom of a great thinker. Written as accessibly as possible for readers of all background with a basic grounding in math, Designing Experiments & Games Of Chance is a work of impressive scholarship and a welcome addition to academic Science History reference collections.
