The Eye of Heaven: Ptolemy, Copernicus, Kepler

by Owen Gingerich
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Twenty-five papers originally published during a 25-year period, beginning in 1964 with "The Computer versus Kepler," examine the evolution of astronomy and the intertwining of raw data, interpretation, and creativity which propels science. A substantial introduction precedes the lightly edited essays which are arranged chronologically, not by date of publication but by their subject matter, to create a coherent monograph. Annotation c.
