interesting and eclectic summary of scientific thought and technical development starting with the Greeks and moving to western europeans contributions. Much time spent on Arab and Jewish influences. Pen and ink drawings. ( )

Very interesting

"This book is a sodden mess of Victorian platitudes and inconsistencies. It perpetuates a great over-rating of Greek culture and complete neglect of Eastern culture - even after the revelations of the archeology of Persepolis." Dr. William G. Houk
