9780142003558: The Science of Harry Potter: How Magic Really Works

As Highfield reminds us, "wizard" actually means wise man - and wizardry and science were closely related fields before Newton. "The Science of Harry Potter" aims to shed light not only on Harry Potter's magical realm, but also on the magic that is taking place in labs and science classrooms in our own "muggle" world.

Book Description Penguin Books, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 208 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Can Fluffy the three-headed dog be explained by advances in molecular biology? Could the discovery of cosmic gravity-shielding effects unlock the secret to the Nimbus 2000 broomstick s ability to fly? Is the griffin really none other than the dinosaur Protoceratops? Roger Highfield, author of the critically acclaimed The Physics of Christmas, explores the fascinating links between magic and science to reveal that much of what strikes us as supremely strange in the Potter books can actually be explained by the conjurings of the scientific mind.
