Episodes in the History of Science
Reality: Episodes in the History of Science explores of some of the major
developments in the history of science in a form suitable for students
with minimal knowledge of modern science and no previous exposure to the
history of science. The intended audience is a class of students in
programs in the humanities and social sciences who are taking a history
of science course to fulfill a science distribution requirement. The
object of the book is to give enough detail on some of the more important
developments to be interesting and representative, without attempting to
survey all of the history of science.
