Sašo Dolenc is a physicist and philosopher by training. He is a co-founder and the editor in chief of the popular online science journal Kvarkadabra (www.kvarkadabra.net), whose mission is to explain science in a simple, attractive and fun form that is open to all.
The aim of the articles collected in the series of "Short Stories from Science, History and Philosophy" is to present some key scientific events, ideas and personalities in the form of short tales that are easy and enjoyable to read. Scientific and philosophical concepts are explained in a way that anyone may understand. Each story may be read separately, but at the same time they all band together to form a wide-ranging introduction to the history of science and areas of contemporary scientific research, as well as some of the recurring problems science has encountered in history and the philosophical dilemmas it raises today.
