Review:

[Bronowski] practiced in life what he expresses in this work; he brought to a television public ideas and information without condescension, without absolute certainty, made science an adventure in the human predicament. He showed all of us that we share that challenge of beauty and values which is art, of the other way of knowing which is science.

(Robert Kirsch Los Angeles Times)

Poet, playwright, philosopher, scientist, teacher and, in his later years, TV personality...Bronowski probably did more to bring art and science together than any other person of our time. This stimulating book collects his 1969 Mellon lectures on art and the imagination, as well as his essays on esthetics, design, the intellect and freedom.
