About The Book
Alfred North Whitehead's Science and the Modern World, originally published in 1925, redefines the concept of modern science.
Taking readers through the history of modern science, Whitehead shows how cultural history has affected science over the ages in relation to such major intellectual themes as romanticism, relativity, quantum theory, religion, and movements for social progress.
