9780883188637

Twenty-five papers originally published during a 25-year period, beginning in 1964 with "The Computer versus Kepler," examine the evolution of astronomy and the intertwining of raw data, interpretation, and creativity which propels science. A substantial introduction precedes the lightly edited essays which are arranged chronologically, not by date of publication but by their subject matter, to create a coherent monograph. Annotation c.
