Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: The House of Wisdom
Join us for a discussion of The House of Wisdom: How Arabic Science Saved Ancient Knowledge and Gave Us the Renaissance by Jim Al-Khalili. Most of the selections for this book discussion group have come from a Western perspective. Iraqi-born physicist Al-Khalili offers the perspective of the Arab world and its many contributions to science, including optical discoveries, pre-Copernicus heliocentric models of the solar system and the particle theory of light.
