    A History of Science: From Agriculture to Artificial Intelligence by Mary Cruse

    Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination – John Dewey

    In A History of Science, Mary Cruse takes readers on a fascinating journey through the evolution of this discipline in its many strands. Throughout the centuries, our conception of what constitutes ‘science’ has developed hugely – from ancient natural philosophers and medieval alchemists to Renaissance scholars and Enlightenment reformers. Modern science evokes images of bubbling test tubes and spotless lab coats, but this limited perception inhibits us in truly understanding the progress of science throughout history. Cruse does not fall into this trap.

    Learn about the development of agricultural tools, the study of weather patterns, mapmaking, mathematics and modern geology. Delve into the cutting-edge science of the 21st century – genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, sustainable energy projects. Cruse even speculates on which breakthroughs are yet to come…

    科学的每一次重大进步都源于一种新的大胆想象——约翰·杜威

    在《科学史》中,玛丽·克鲁斯 (Mary Cruse) 带领读者踏上了一段引人入胜的旅程,了解这门学科的多方面演变。 几个世纪以来,我们对“科学”构成的概念有了巨大的发展——从古代自然哲学家和中世纪炼金术士到文艺复兴时期的学者和启蒙运动的改革者。 现代科学让人联想到冒泡的试管和一尘不染的实验室外套的图像,但这种有限的认知阻碍了我们真正了解历史上科学的进步。 克鲁斯不会落入这个陷阱。

    了解农业工具的发展、天气模式的研究、地图制作、数学和现代地质学。 深入研究 21 世纪的前沿科学——基因工程、人工智能、可持续能源项目。 克鲁斯甚至推测还有哪些突破尚未到来……
