The scientific theories that were first discovered and made public in the years 1700-1900 are some of the most pivotal in history. Landmark theories of planetary motion, the workings of nature, and the speed of light were all ideas that took the world by storm. Now you can share in that story of discovery in a series of 36 lectures designed to give you a rock-solid understanding of the great discoveries of Newton, Darwin, Franklin, Pasteur, and so many others.

These lecturers are not only about the scientific developments of the seventeenth to the nineteenth century but they gave me an insight into the mindset of people who wanted a better understanding of the world we live in. I am going to listen to these lectures again; they are enjoyable indeed.
