Abstract

Every age and generation has its own picture of the universe and of man’s place within it. This paperback re-issue of the famous review edited by Biswas et al. examines how the perspective has evolved over the centuries, up to the original date of publication in 1989. It consists of 14 chapters written by some of the foremost scientists and historians of science of their days, each tackling a separate theme
