Edge of Objectivity:
An Essay in the History of Scientific Ideas
Charles Coulston Gillispie

Book Description

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"Gillispie has written a bold, penetrating, and very personal book.... Deft evocation of personality, bright flashes of biographical detail, and enough connected narrative to show the direction and complexity of scientific advance, are all subordinated to the task of examining the crucial attitudes and ideas, the signal commitments of thought, which have shaped modern science and troubled the mind of modern man.... All told, this is an exciting book ... a pleasure to read and meditate upon."--The New York Times
