The Origins of Knowledge and Imagination by Jacob Bronowski


The author presents lectures explaining how we perceive, imagine, and symbolize the world is dictated by our biology. He proposes to explain how we receive and translate our experience of the world so that we achieve knowledge. He examines the mechanisms of our perception; the origin and nature of natural language; formal systems and scientific discourse; and how science progresses by exploring its own errors and connections.
