From Descartes to Kepler, Plato to Newton, music has offered wide-ranging influence on science, and still does. Pesic’s Music and the Making of Modern Science reveals exploration of music and science co-mingling.
Key moments in science are examined, including the establishment of irrational numbers, planetary motion, optics, electromagnetism, and quantum physics, as well as these moments’ relations to music.
