Wednesday is April Fools’ Day
BOOK OF THE WEEK
Art & Physics
By Leonard Shlain
I find it difficult to believe there are people who can write a book like this book. I first read it back in 1992, when I had the honor of briefly meeting Leonard Shlain.
I’ve gone through it a number of times since then, each time gaining a bit more understanding of the nature of Art & Physics. I would say if you are interested in either one of these subjects or you just want to know more about the world, you should read this book.
Art interprets the visible world. Physics charts its unseen workings. The two realms seem completely opposed. But consider that both strive to reveal truths for which there are no words––with physicists using the language of mathematics and artists using visual images.
In Art & Physics, Leonard Shlain tracks their breakthroughs side by side throughout history to reveal an astonishing correlation of visions. From the classical Greek sculptors to Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns, and from Aristotle to Einstein, artists have foreshadowed the discoveries of scientists, such as when Monet and Cezanne intuited the coming upheaval in physics that Einstein would initiate.
