The Poetry and Music of Science breaks the silence on the deep creativity and imagination required in science, as necessary as its formal logic. Some aspects of science and art bear close comparison - examples are: the art of the novel and the art of scientific experimentation, the use of visual thinking in painting and physics, the properties of number in music and mathematics. The book eavesdrops on conversations between scientists on how new theories
arise, and listens to artists' and composers' witness of their own creative processes. Medieval philosophy, neuroscience, musical analysis, the physics of light and theology are all brought to bear on the
question of how minds imagine and create the new, and how art and science both contribute to what makes us human.
