Are you looking forward to a life less than a century in which you will do mostly mundane things to survive? Would you be more fully developing your talents & interests were it not for preventable historical events? HERE AT LAST IS A READABLE, THOROUGH & METICULOUSLY RESEARCHED ACCOUNT of that most pivotal & intriguing philosopher-scientist of the early 17th century, whose contributions to physics, astronomy, scientific methodology & instrumentation were so critical that the title "Father of Modern Science" is usually reserved for him. This intellectual revolution brought him into tragic conflict with the Inquisition, a conflict known as the Galileo affair. Falling under the sword of Di Canzio's polemic are a host of myths, such as the common belief that Galileo recanted. Sharply distinct from past accounts of the massive collision between Galileo's philosophy & that of the philosophers & churchmen of his day, it is sure to be controversial - yet it extends the flow of constructive interpretation, including excerpts from a never-before published manuscript of leading Galileo scholar Stillman Drake. Reviewed & acclaimed by experts for its brilliant scholarship & fascinating presentation of the contributions of Galileo to science & life - with implications for the future of humanity.
