“A gem of enlightenment. . . . One rejoices in Bronowski’s dedication to the identity of acts of creativity and of imagination, whether in Blake or Yeats or Einstein or Heisenberg.”—Kirkus Reviews“According to Bronowski, our account of the world is dictated by our biology: how we perceive, imagine, symbolize, etc. He proposes to explain how we receive and translate our experience of the world so that we achieve knowledge. He examines the mechanisms of our perception; the origin and nature of natural language; formal systems and scientific discourse; and how science, as a systematic attempt to establish closed systems one after another, progresses by exploring its own errors and new but unforeseen connections. . . . A delightful look at the inquiring mind.”—Library Journal“Eminently enjoyable to read, with a good story or ‘bon mot’ on every page.”—Nature“A well-written and brilliantly presented defense of the scientific enterprise which could be especially valuable to scientists and to teachers of science at all levels.”—AAAS Science Books & FilmsContents1. The Mind as an Instrument for Understanding2. The Evolution and Power of Symbolic Language3. Knowledge as Algorithm and as Metaphor4. The Laws of Nature and the Nature of Laws5. Error, Progress, and the Concept of Time6. Law and Individual Responsibility
