    the greatsest inventions of the past 2,000 years

    This book is asking for people to explain what they think is the greatest invention on the last 2,000 years. They asked many people who deal with science and the environment everyday to tell what they though was the greatest invention. A few times the invention of the contraceptive pill, the computer, the printing press and many more that were though by many to be one of the greatest inventions. The question was put out by John Brockman who edited the book he wanted to find out what other people thought of as ¿great¿ inventions. Along with inventions there were also concepts and ideas listed in this book. People came up with stuff like the probability theory and the idea of an idea. There was a wide diversity between what people thought of as great inventions, for example the atomic bomb then there was others who nominated hay. As you can see from reading this book what your idea of a ¿great¿ invention is all depends on how you live and where you live. But still the question wanted to find out what people thought most carved how we live today.
