Editorial Reviews


[A] deeply thought-out probing of both the scientific enterprise and its effect on the society around it. (James Trefil New York Times Book Review)

Book Description

Professor Holton continues his analysis of how modem science works and its influences on our world. A particular emphasis is on the thematic elements, the unconscious presuppositions that guide scientific work to success or failure. This work ranges over a broad spectrum of areas that command the attention of all readers with an interest in understanding the development of modem science. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
