History of Science -- Dick Jackson
Prior to the 17th century original thought had been discouraged, both by custom and by the authorities (churches).

However, beginning toward the end of the 1600's great thinkers began to ask and answer fundamental questions about the world we experience. This series of lectures covers the start of what we now call science and goes on to describe the advances made up to the end of the 19thC. If you are fascinated by ideas -- correct, incorrect or just plain wacko, you will enjoy these lectures by an acclaimed professor of history.

Part 1 of this series, presented here, will comprise five sessions covering 10 lectures, taking us from around 1700 to the end of the 18th century.  Along the way we will explore such things as the demise of alchemy, the beginnings of biology and medicine, theories about the Earth, and early experiments with electricity.

Ample time for discussion will be arranged.

Further classes will be arranged in the future to complete the lecture series.

Wednesdays, January 4, 11, 18, 25, and February 1 2017, 10:00am- 12:00pm   KCBX in SLO
