Life of Discovery: Michael Faraday, Giant of the Scientific Revolution
James Hamilton (au)
Illuminates the life of Michael Faraday, an amazing, deeply contradictory man. Born in 1791 in England, Faraday had a modest education, yet he was gifted with a rare intelligence & intuition. As apprentice to the esteemed Humphry Davy of the Royal Institution, he helped develop the miner’s safety lamp, which revolutionized the search for coal, then went on to make a landmark study of induction, the connection between electricity & magnetism, & the idea of the electromagnetic field. From electric motors to precision-made eyeglass lenses to steel razors to liquid chlorine, his inventions have become staples of civilized society. “The definitive account of a remarkable man who merged intuition & logic, prayer & deduction, & made science an art.” Illustrations.
