John Heilbron

  • Planned to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the publication of the Starry Messenger.
  • Author is one of the most distinguished scholars on the Scientific Revolution.
  • Not simply a biography of Galileo the mathematician-- also examines his roles as a musician, artist, writer, philosopher, or gadgeteer. This book is planned as a fresh and much more rounded view of Galileo than the various biographies and accounts that have focused on his science alone, or presented him only as the hero of a clash between science and religion.
