Einstein, History, And Other Passions: The Rebellion Against Science At The End Of The Twentieth Century by Gerald Holton

Through his rich exploration of Einsteins thought, Gerald Holton shows how the best science depends on great intuitive leaps of imagination, and how science is indeed the creative expression of the traditions of Western civilization. [The] book makes a wonderfully cohesive whole. It is rich in ideas, elegantly expressed. I highly recommend it to any serious student of science and culture. --Lucy Horwitz, Boston Book Review An important and lasting contribution to a more profound understanding of the place of science in our culture. --Hans C. von Baeyer, Boston Sunday Globe [Holtons] themes are central to an understanding of the nature of science, and Holton does an excellent job of identifying and explaining key features of the scientific enterprise, both in the historical sense and in modern science ... I know of no better informed scientist who has studied the nature of science for half a century. --Ron Good, Science and Education
