Seeing Further - The Story of Science and the Royal Society by Bill Bryson PDF eBook €6 buy download

Edited and introduced by Bill Bryson, with contributions from Richard Dawkins,
Margaret Atwood, Richard Holmes, Martin Rees, Richard Fortey, Steve Jones, James
Gleick and Neal Stephenson amongst others, this beautiful, lavishly illustrated
book tells the story of science and the Royal Society, from 1660 to the present.
On a damp weeknight in November, 350 years ago, a dozen or so men gathered at
Gresham College in London. A twenty-eight year old - and not widely famous -
Christopher Wren was giving a lecture on astronomy. As his audience listened to
him speak, they decided that it would be a good idea to create a Society to
promote the accumulation of useful knowledge. With that, the Royal Society was
born. Since its birth, the Royal Society has pioneered scientific exploration
and discovery. Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Robert Hooke,
Robert Boyle, Joseph Banks, Humphry Davy, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, John Locke,
Alexander Fleming - all were fellows. Bill Bryson's favourite fellow was
Reverend Thomas Bayes, a brilliant mathematician who devised Bayes' theorem.
Its complexity meant that it had little practical use in Bayes' own lifetime,
but today his theorem is used for weather forecasting, astrophysics and stock
market analysis. A milestone in mathematical history, it only exists because
the Royal Society decided to preserve it - just in case. The Royal Society
continues to do today what it set out to do all those years ago. Its members
have split the atom, discovered the double helix, the electron, the computer
and the World Wide Web. Truly international in its outlook, it has created
modern science. 'Seeing Further' celebrates its momentous history and
achievements, bringing together the very best of science writing.
Filled with illustrations of treasures from the Society's archives, this is
a unique, ground-breaking and beautiful volume, and a suitable reflection of
the immense achievements of science.
