Nice try Professor Leon. Not recommended for lesiure reading. This is a mandatory read for a class.

Talks about different philosphers like Socrates, Plato, Decartes, etc. point-of-view on science like helicentric or geocentric world using logic. Leon's commentary isn't that great but the argumentations are interesting.
