When We Were Kids: How a Child Becomes a Scientist
John Brockman (au)
Some of the world’s greatest scientists reveal how they discovered their vocation & became committed to a life of science. Here are original, autobio. essays by 27 scientists, incl.: Paul Davies, Richard Dawkins, Daniel C. Dennett, Freeman Dyson, Murray Gell-Mann, Nicholas Humphrey, Lynn Margulis, Steven Pinker & Robert M. Sapolsky. Each writer identifies that moment or those influences in his or her youth which triggered the determination to become a scientist. Was there a particular event or set of circumstances? To what extent did parents, peers or teachers contribute? Why math rather than psych.; why biology rather than physics? What were the turning points, mistakes, epiphanies? “Tells as much about life as it does about science.”
