Free download Ý Early Greek Science Thales to Aristotle 108 Free read ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ï G.E.R. Lloyd G.E.R. Lloyd ï 8 Summary E discusses the social and economic setting of early Greek science; and he analyzes the motives and incentives of the different groups of writers. This is a handy little introduction to what the ancients would have called natural philosophy They didn t have science the way we think of it today but they did still try to understand the natural world how it works and how it came to be Lloyd writes clearly and gives a great understanding of what the ancient uestions were and how thinkers tried to come up with answers The book doesn t waste time trying to show all of the ways in which the ancients were wrong by modern standards He doesn t deny this but instead of making it the focus he focuses on the miraculous depth of understanding that the ancients did seem to have and the way that their scientific inuiries were able to reach a critical mass by the time of Aristotle This makes the great philosopher seem like a historical inevitability than some miraculous genius although genius he surely was too The book covers ancient physics material science medicine mathematics astronomy and biology In particular the book focuses on physics material science and astronomy as well as basic scientific method because these were the most developed fields during this period Medicine was also very developed during this period but is too big a topic to do justice to in such a short book If you are interested in that I recommend Nutton s Ancient Medicine I found the section on astronomy difficult because the ancient models of the cosmos in which planets stars sun and moon are attached to rotating spheres were hard for me to visualize There are several helpful diagrams to illustrate this but I still struggled to wrap my mind around their models This book made me excited to get ahold the seuel Greek Science After Aristotle
