Along the way, the authors, two of Europes most celebrated and original thinkers, freewheel through history, touching on the work of Charles Darwin, Rudyard Kipling, Francis Bacon, and even Baron von Munchausen to link the origin of life on Earth with the development of the human brain. In these pages, readers learn how Aristotle and Galileo disagreed, how Queen Christinas clock flummoxed Descartes, and how a jellyfish and an airplane share the same navigational system- youll even learn the meaning of words like karst and cnidarian. But mostly, readers of Green Fire will enjoy a masterful book that combines scientific rigor with an entertaining narrative to explore the evolution of life on Earth and humankinds place in it.
