Description
Information
'The Ascent Of Man', Bronowski's great work of science and humanity, traces the rise of our species in an original way: within the framework of the creative human spirit.

Jacob Bronowski examines the development of science from the flint tool to the formulation of geometry; from the creation of the arch to the theory of relativity. But as well as having a rare grasp of science, Bronowski is also an historian of ideas and he explores the social and historical background that gave rise to those inventions. Consequently, his book gives us new, profound insights not only into the realms of science and technology, but also into nature, art and society.

Looking forward to an unknown future, in which creativity often seems to be ruled by economics, Bronowski's observations remain both moving and pertinent.
