Archimedes and the door of science

This biography of one of the most important scientists of Ancient Greece, and an explanation of his contributions to physics, astronomy, and mathematics. Archimedes was a most remarkable ancient Greek. Many of our best idesas about eaducation come from the Greek system of education, which is engagingly discussed in the early chapters of this book. His attitude towards truth, the idea that truth is important for its own sake, not for its practical applications, is of enormous importance. This book shows how exciting Archimedes found ideas, and in exploring those ideas, allows the reader to experience some of the excitement for himself.

The story of Archimedes, famous mathematician and scientist, conveys something of the culture of Ancient Greece as well as of this remarkable man and his critical influence. The story is written for children, even when it explains some of Archimedes' scientific and mathematical discoveries. Line drawing illustrations help us visualize many of these concepts. Many anecdotes about Archimedes have come down through history, and the author blends these into her storytelling. The result is a thoroughly enjoyable book that manages to cover a great deal of educational territory. When comparison prices appear, please keep in mind that they are subject to change.
