    PDF (Anaximander) It’s hard to make an assessment of this book. On its face, it seems to be a historical study of the place of Anaximander in the development of modern science. And, for the first half of the book, it really is that. But from there, Rovelli takes off into a much loosely bound discussion of truth, reality, relativism, religion, language, and the fate of the world.

    I’ll start with Anaximander. It’s

In this profound book on the history and philosophy of science, Rovelli bridges the brief 2,600 year gap between modern theoretical physics and pre Socratic philosophers from the sixth century BCE.

    PDF (Anaximander) I am a huge Carlo Rovelli fan. This book was a very interesting read because provided a history on how ancient thought brought us to where we are today. I think that most of us are aware of the fact that the Greeks had conceived of the Atom, but I for one was not aware of the philosophical thought that was put into this concept. It was very a very enjoyable and enlightening read!

Carlo's style of writing is informal, flowing through some quite complex ideas. A real pleasure to read. My only dislike was that towards the end of the book he becomes repetitive in his rant against religious indoctrination.
