Current Reading

This blog is primarily for me to blog my responses to books that I'm reading. Sometimes I blog about other stuff too, though.

I'm currently sort of reading Two New Sciences by Galileo; I may or may not get around to blogging about it.

I'm also sort of reading From Sight to Light: The passage from ancient to modern optics by A. Mark Smith. Again, I may or may not get around to blogging about it.

The main takeaway is that Muslim science was what Kuhn would call "normal science" within the framework of Greek science, but before we see that as damning we should remember that almost all of modern science is "normal science."
