Galileo has been termed by Einstein "the father of modern science." Why that is so is the main burden of The Achievement of Galileo. Included in this volume are not only selections from his own works, full of the thrill and pride of discovery, but also assessments of his achievement by both his contemporaries and modern physicists like Philip Frank and Morris R. Cohen. This volume answers the urgent need to effect a better understanding between our scientific and nonscientific communities.
