Praise for Anaximander:

“Solid insights into the foundations of science…as usual, Rovelli communicates his ideas with clarity and verve.” —Kirkus

“An insightful survey of the scientific contributions of Greek philosopher Anaximander…Rovelli makes the most of the available evidence in building his case that the philosopher’s emphasis on natural causes marked a sea change in human thought. This is a masterful overview of a pivotal figure in scientific history.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“As Rovelli’s fans will expect, this book is excellent. It is never less than engaging, and enviably compendious.” —The Telegraph (UK)

“Books discovered in drawers by publishers should often have been left there…Anaximander?… Shouldn’t he stay in the dusty cabinet too? Absolutely not: Anaximander is a delight and so is this book” —Sunday Times (UK)

“A celebration of the scientific spirit of inquiry and the remarkable achievements of one man more than 2,500 years ago.” —Times Literary Supplement (UK)

“A bold and persuasive case that this ancient Greek philosopher scientist was… the founder of critical thinking.” —Adam Rutherford, Start the Week

“What [Rovelli] has to say about the Greek philosopher Anaximander from the 6th century BC is fascinating… by the end of the book I was convinced.” —Popular Science
