Podrobný popis:

Publikace: God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science - James Hannam. The adjective 'medieval' is now a synonym for superstition and

ignorance. Yet without the work of medieval scholars there could

have been no Galileo, no Newton and no Scientific Revolution. In

"God's Philosophers", James Hannam traces the neglected roots of

modern science in the medieval world. He debunks many of the myths

about the Middle Ages, showing that medieval people did not think

the earth was flat, nor did Columbus 'prove' that it is a sphere.

Contrary to common belief, the Inquisition burnt nobody for their

science, nor was Copernicus afraid of persecution. No Pope tried to

ban human dissection or the number zero. On the contrary, as Hannam

reveals, the Middle Ages gave rise to staggering achievements in

both science and technology: for instance, spectacles and the

mechanical clock were both invented in thirteenth-century Europe.

Ideas from the Far East, like printing, gunpowder and the compass,

were taken further by Europeans than the Chinese had imagined

possible. The compass helped Columbus to discover the New World in

1492 while printing allowed an incredible 20 million books to be

produced in the first 50 years after Gutenberg published his Bible

in 1455. And Hannam argues that scientific progress was often made

thanks to, rather than in spite of, the influence of Christianity.

Charting an epic journey through six centuries of history, "God's

Philosophers" brings back to light the discoveries of neglected

geniuses like John Buridan, Nicole Oresme and Thomas Bradwardine,

as well as putting into context the contributions of more familiar

figures like Roger Bacon, William of Ockham and St Thomas Aquinas.

Besides being a thrilling history of a period of surprising

invention and innovation, "God's Philosophers" reveals the debt

modern science and technology owe to the supposedly 'dark' ages of

medieval Europe. Publikace: God's Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science - James Hannam. 'A gripping read full of fantastic illustrations; it's certainly a present I'd love to get.' Bookbag
