SUMMARY Curiosity 108 Be no uestion too vast or too trivial to be ruled out of bounds Why can fleas jump so high What is gravity What shape are clouds Today curiosity is no longer reviled but celebratedExamining how our inuisitive impulse first became sanctioned changing from a vice to a virtue Curiosity begins with the age when modern science began a time that spans the lives of Galileo and Isaac Newton It reveal Review title What do we really want to knowAuthor Ball frames a fascinating subject what do we want to know what should we want to know what is and isn t appropriate to know What does science want to know and why what does theology want us to know what to accept by faith and what never to uestion All of these uestions Ball categorizes as curiosity in this deep and sometimes too dense study of the history of science and the scientific revolution which Ball states was neitherIn part as a corrective for those who believe that science developed out of and distinct from magic alchemy and natural philosophy in a small defined set of events in clear contrast to those past and concurrent ways of thinking Ball shows how these ways of thinking all overlapped and intertwined in their subject matter and methods Ball documents how early thinkers now adopted as founding figures of science such as Galileo Newton and Robert Boyle who made a clear break with the unscientific past actually thought in ways and studied subjects congruent with their alchemical peers He also traces philosophies of appropriate areas of study back to Aristotle and Plato and shows how much influence these ancient Greek philosophers still carried in intellectual life centuries later As the definition of curiosity broadened the allowable and patron approved and funded areas of study expanded in the fertile span of years from the 16th to the 18th centuries that are at the core of Ball s historyThe subject matter is sometimes better than Ball s approach to it While he throws out names uotes sources and historical allusions in dense arguments and rapid and sometimes confusing transitions his central uestions can be boiled down to this1 What was allowable and would be funded The church and the governments and kings it both owned and answered to had a large part to say in answer to this uestion Science even before the days of big science cost money and needed royal approval to proceed unhindered Government church authorities and wealthy patrons could provide or withhold as the church did from Galileo these vital necessities and also direct how they were used Ball talks about the cabinets of curiosities wealthy collectors assembled to satisfy their own curiosities and shows how these data collection efforts sometimes drove science and sometimes favored magical and alchemical displays of wonder and sometimes the recipients of the finding or the collections moved freely between both ways of thinking2 What did the thinkers themselves consider worthy of curiousity What did they want to know The answer was sometimes everything which some thinkers considered indiscriminate collection that wasted precious money and brainpower In contrast Ball uotes Francis BaconGod has framed the mind like a glass capable of the image of the universe and desirous to receive it as the eye to receive light and thus it is not only pleased with the variety and vicissitudes of things but also endeavours to find out the laws they observe in their changes and alterationsThis uote powerfully amplifies the philosophy that I espouse in The catholic reader the
