1 Review
The central theme of this book is the crisis of self confidence that springs from each individuals desire to establish his unique identity, in the face of scientific discoveries which seem to show that he is now more than a complicated machine. Dr Bronowski reviews recent discoveries in physics and biology, in particular the progress made in analysing the electrical and chemical process of the brain. In explaining the implications of this new knowledge he redefines the idea of the human self, and by analysing the processes of science and artistic creation, seeks to establish a coherent, humanistic philosophy of man.

User Review  - Gena Lott - Goodreads

I should read this again now that I'm older! I read it for a college class but that was when I first got out of High School and I'm sure it went over my head to a large degree. Read full review
