Über diesen Titel:
Rezension: "The contributors to this unusual collection of essays--two physicists, a mathematician, a metallurgist, a psychologist, and a social theorist--all agree that aesthetic judgments are crucial to science. After all, Einstein, Bohr, and other pioneers of quantum theory relied heavily on visual thinking and aesthetic intuition. Darwin's recurrent image of an 'irregularly branching tree' presaged his theory of evolution. Poincare believed that aesthetic, not logic, is the hallmark of the mathematical mind. These clearly written essays explore such topics as the importance of personal style to discovery and invention, theoretical paradigms in the evolution of science, and the productive yet generally unacknowledged role of complex images in scientific work. Illustrative examples are drawn from a wide range of sources: crystal patterns to modern architecture, the writings of Borges and Pirsig's 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.' A fruitful comparison of artist and scientist."--"Publ
