Carlo Rovelli discusses the impact of the Milesians in general and Anaximander in particular upon what was to become post Renaissance modern science Rovelli sees Greek Philosophy as the bridge between primitive superstition and modern scientific thought He presents the reader with an engaging and eminently readable study of the birth of scientific thought when man first abandoned religious superstition in favor of a human reason unencumbered by his fear of gods or GodI have one small criticism of Rovelli's work At times it borders on a polemic against religion itself Not all religions are primitive or fundamentalistThere is room in the mind of man and in the universe itself for both science and God Carlo stick to science and philosophy You know them well and have much to offer the curious reader Leave God and religion to an individual's faith
