This book is about the inner structure of everything, a quest which goes back to the ancient Greeks and touches on all of scientific and philosophical thought since then. There are longer biographies, an extended introduction which sets out the present state of knowledge,followed by the main A-Z section and then by 'Timelines' to show what was discovered when.
