Historian Peter Watson offers a focused, intelligent and entertaining history of the sciences and a discussion of the nature of the physical universe. He reports on scientific and human history to argue that the sciences converge and addresss all aspects of human existence. Though this volume runs more than 500 pages, Watson races through some explanations, including those of dauntingly complex and arcane scientific concepts. Of necessity, he ranges near and far, touching upon relativity, myth, continental drift, evolution, the periodic table and myriad other topics. Watson is an impressive, articulate polymath. And when you finish this engaging tome, you will be one, too. getAbstract recommends Watson’s persuasive, impressive cosmic overview to everyone interested in science, history, progress or how disciplines intersect over time.

In this book, you will learn

  • How specific sciences gradually unified,
  • How sciences affect one another and
