These studies complement equivalent volumes in ABDO’s ongoing “Great Minds of Science” series by leaving biographical details by the wayside to instead focus on specific ideas, experiments, evidence, chains of reasoning, and publications associated with each figure’s best-known work. Brief extracts from letters or books supply exercises in understanding primary source material, and sets of closing queries invite readers to review and ruminate. Strong choices for deepening subject collections.
