Vicedo tracks the advance of Bowlby’s paintings in addition to the interdisciplinary examine that he used to aid his thought, together with Konrad Lorenz’s reviews of imprinting in ducks, Harry Harlow’s experiments with monkeys, and Mary Ainsworth’s observations of kids and moms in Uganda and the us.

De wereld verklaard (Dutch Edition) by Steven Weinberg,Ineke Mertens,Hans Zuidervaart

By Steven Weinberg,Ineke Mertens,Hans Zuidervaart

Wat gebeurt er als een vooraanstaand natuurkundige terugkijkt op het ontstaan van de wetenschap? Steven Weinbergs reis van Thales en Ptolemaeus langs al-Biruni en Oresme naar Galileo en Newton is geen geschiedenisboek in de gangbare zin van het woord. Het vertelt hoe de wetenschap, vaak toevalligerwijs, ontstond uit het netwerk van ideeën dat ook religie, poëzie, filosofie, wiskunde en technologie omvatte. De geleerden wisten niet alleen niet wat wij nu wél weten, ze wisten zelfs niet wat er te weten was once, of hoe zij daar achter konden komen.

Weinberg schenkt veel aandacht aan de moeite die het gekost heeft om te leren hoe wij iets over de wereld kunnen leren – en welke ingrijpende veranderingen in het denken dat met zich heeft meegebracht. Hij verdiept zich met de kennis van nu in de problemen van zijn grote voorgangers. Het resultaat is verrassend en prikkelend.

Ian McEwan: ‘Ik heb De wereld verklaard geboeid gelezen. Het verandert het onedele metaal van een gewone wetenschapsgeschiedenis in zuiver goud – in een magistrale lofzang op de lange, heroïsche en nog altijd onvoltooide strijd om de natuur te begrijpen. Ik heb voor het eerst begrepen hoe moeilijk het is geweest om goden, mensen en doelen uit onze verklaringen voor natuurverschijnselen te verwijderen. Dit is een betoog dat elk relativisme met groot succes overboord zet. Het boek is een intellectueel inspirerend overzicht van wat Weinberg ons grote verhaal noemt, ons avontuur van georganiseerde nieuwsgierigheid. Ik heb het boek vol opwinding uitgelezen.’
