Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book for the reader who wants to learn what physics is all about – and for the person who has taken a few physics courses in high school, but wants to learn more about its diverse theories and historical development.
Even if you have taken college-level physics courses, you might not necessarily know the fascinating history of physics development, and the backgrounds of physicists who contributed to that development, such as Kepler, Newton, the Bernoulli family, Planck, Bohr, Einstein, von Neumann and Oppenheimer, to name only a few.
And of course, if you want to learn why world civilization still suffers from a hiatus in the advancement of science in general — and physics in particular – this is the book for you.
In 2006, Allan Karson received enthusiastic feedback for his book idea, and was told that Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book that is very much needed. Now, 10 years later, this work is finally ready.
– This book is written for intelligent, inquiring people; it does not talk down to them.
– This book is exciting. Each chapter presents a different historical time period and a different physics discipline. This changing environment presents a continuing challenge. There are no long, non-factual, non-interesting or dull descriptions.
– This book keeps the quantity of math equations to a minimum. Only one equation is presented and explained in detail: Einstein’s fascinating equation that transforms how people, objects and clocks appear to change when they are moving at speeds that approach the speed of light.
– There are no ‘heavy’ descriptions of physics theories; charts are used to provide supporting explanations and description points in charts usually consist of one-liners.
– This book’s sources have been scrupulously read to assure correct and complete details.
Dive in to the mesmerizing world of the history and future of physics with “Science Slept Sixteen Centuries…”
Other Works soon to be Published by the Author:-
“Syllabus for A One-Year High School Physics Course—for ALL Students”
To be given/applied during the Third-Year of High School as part of the
High School Cirriculum.
The syllabus to this wonderful handbook is based on the information presented in the book “Science Slept Sixteen Centuries, An Introduction to the Science of Physics”, and is to serve as an accompaniment to a better understanding, and more ‘laid back’ approach to this comprehensive and exciting subject.
I, and my team salute you Allan Karson for providing us with such a most comprehensive yet uncomplicated version and approach to the book “Science Slept and its ‘Principles’.
These two works are truly a most unorthodox, appealing, easily digestible and welcoming Conceptual and Historical Approach to Physics, as Contrasted to a Mathematical Approach. Providing keen readers a fresh approach and new way to learning about this most essential gateway to the ‘basics of science and physics branch of higher level learning, which forms the basis and groundwork to all manner of industries and the day to day running and improving of all areas, sectors and the lives of the society in which we thrive in the modern day. The application of the Principles supported by the study of Science and Physics is evident all around us in both the domestic domain as well as all automated commercial industries, and medical sectors.
The following are the comments of Professor Emeritus Joseph Krieger, former Chair of the Physics Department at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, who read most parts of “Science Slept Sixteen Centuries, An Introduction to the Science of Physics” and assisted in correcting and improving key topics:-
“Monumental effort to inform all of us about developments in physics since Galileo. Particularly enjoyed all of the personal information about scientists….your courage in tackling such a mathematically difficult subject without using more than a few equations makes this interesting and informative reading for the non-specialist.”
