Between the 9th and 12th centuries. A friend writes to say:
recently found this three-part BBC-TV series about scientific discovery in Old Islam. Each part is approximately an hour long.
Dr. Jim Al-Khalili — an Iraqi-born professor of theoretical physics who teaches in Britain [“at the University of Surrey where he also holds a chair in the Public Engagement in Science. He is president of the British Humanist Association.”] — narrates the series.
PART I: The Language of Science
PART II: The Empire of Reason
PART III: The Power of Doubt
I watched the entire series and found it fascinating.
Wonder what happened.
Anyone seen it? Thoughts?
