5.0 out of 5 stars Straw Dogs, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and perceptive critique of humanist individualism. If reality is devoid of divinity it makes no sense to ascribe value, meaning or significance to anything, including human beings. Needs to be read alongside Ronald Dworkin 'Religion without God' and someone like John Milbank 'Theology and Social Theory: Beyond secular reason'.

An excellent book for the non-science specialist, with good overview of major figures in the history of science and an outline of the insights they contributed. A good starting point for reading in a structured way in the development of scientific ideas, with a useful bibliography.
