5.0 out of 5 stars Science Literacy=Understanding our Founding Fathers 22 Jan. 2012
By C. M. Levin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cohen does an excellent job in describing how the Founding Fathers based so much of our country's most vital documents-the Declaration of Independence & the Constitution-& their other writings, such as the Federalist Letters, on the science of their time, which Franklin & Jefferson had a great part in the making. In our time, as we look at the sad state of scientific literacy, are we in danger of losing our grasp of thse documents because the underlying concepts of science aren't understood?
