Summary Jacob Bronowski, a leader in the movement of scientific humanism, presents his personal view of the great creative discoveries of mankind. Traveling to various locations, Bronowski considers the qualities of thought and imagination that compelled man to analyze the physical world and then to explore the invisible laws and structures above and beneath its surface. Examines the interrelationship of science and the humanities throughout history; the influence of social and political developments on scientific discovery; scientific attempts to understand and to alter the natural world; the role of science today.
