Recently I have read the book ‘God’s Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science’ by James Hannam. I found it a very enjoyable read, with a very timely message. Hannam tells stories about (natural) philosophers in the middle ages, and how the work they did prepares for the work of later scientists like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton.
For me, it was fascinating to learn how natural philosophy changed over time, through the lives of these thinkers that I had never heard off. Learning about them has really broadened my academic horizons. I wish you the same experience.
You can find ‘God’s Philosophers’ in the following web-shops.
Please note: the links above are ‘sponsored links’ and if you click them and buy the book, you are rewarding me for making you attentive to this book, at no extra cost to yourself. If you prefer not to reward me, please google the title of the book and you will also find the shops. Also note that I am very selective in the books I recommend, I only recommend those that I especially like and support.
I am so enthusiastic about this book that I constructed the following slide deck that can give you a further impression about its contents.
