The Science of Matter strikes a balance between the two basic sciences of matter, physics and chemistry, by drawing on popularized secondary accounts and actual words and symbols used by scientists to give the reader a sense of the contributions which modern science has made to the study of matter. With selections spanning the classical age to the twentieth century, this book offers a clear introduction to the evolution of modern science.
