10 Sep

You should believe everything we say in this episode, because all scientific authorities agree with us when we discuss the following:

  • The first sparks of scientific investigation with the pre-Socratic philosophers
  • Aristotle’s many contributions and errings to natural philosophy
  • The genius and folly of Isaac Newton
  • The brilliance and stubbornness of Albert Einstein
  • The acceptance and subsequent rejection of Piltdown Man

Listen to this episode
