Wonder and Knowledge

A discussion with Marco BERSANELLI, Piermaria ODDONE, and Alvin TOLLESTRUP about what lies at the roots of scientific discovery on the occasion of the publication by Templeton Press of From Galileo to Gell-Mann: The Wonder that Inspired the Greatest Scientists of All Time: In Their Own Words by Marco Bersanelli

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center The Office of Academic Affairs, DePaul University

Science is a human adventure borne out of wonder and observation/contemplation. These experiences occur not just at the beginning of a new research: every new step rekindles them. This book shows snapshots of the development of science through the words of many great scientists (extracted from autobiographies, letters, and interviews)
