GREAT SCIENTIFIC IDEAS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

by | Read by Steven L. Goldman

Contemporary Culture • 18 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2007

Professor Goldman covers a wide swath of intellectual history, delving into philosophy, technology, and economics, as he covers both the theory and practice of science. He has a strong, friendly voice and an enthusiastic delivery. But he has a plethora of complex information to convey and rarely pauses for breath; his sentences can lose their way in never-ending Chinese boxes of clauses and parentheses, confusing both him and the listener. Some of his ideas--for example, that scientific instruments are extensions not of our senses, but of our minds--are neither convincing nor compelling. But his delivery is enjoyable, and the range of intellectual territory he covers makes the course worthwhile. Accompanying books provide outlines, transcripts, and reference materials.
