Benjamin Farington : Science and Politics in the Ancient World

Under heading 'Early Greek Science. -- And Lucretius': 'Farington (Science and Politics in the Ancient World) thinks that Ionia observed and experimented freely; that Science became conditioned by politics [...] 'Now I am reading Cornford (From Religion to Philosophy). I doubt whether Farington has. For Cornford proves that Ionian Science was conditioned by religion. This, though less exciting, is probable. 'I find these early speculations useful in clearing my own mind, and helping it to see how it has been twisted. And Farington recalls me to my proper job [...] I ought to think a little more, and not to slop about being diffident or charming.'

Century: 1800-1849 / 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Edward Morgan Forster      Print: Book
