Description-
  • From the bestselling author of The Ghost Map and Everything Bad Is Good For You.

    Steven Johnson recounts the story of the brilliant man who embodied the relationship between science, religion, and politics for America’s Founding Fathers in this fascinating audiobook. THE INVENTION OF AIR is a story of genius and violence and friendship in the midst of sweeping historical change. It is the story of Joseph Priestley–scientist and theologian, protégé of Benjamin Franklin, friend of Thomas Jefferson–an eighteenth-century radical thinker who played pivotal roles in the invention of ecosystem science, the discovery of oxygen, the founding of the Unitarian Church, and the intellectual development of the United States. It is a story that only Steven Johnson, acclaimed juggler of disciplines and provocative ideas, can do justice to.

    Bestselling author Steven Johnson recounts the story of the brilliant man who embodied the relationship between science, religion, and politics for America’s Founding Fathers.


    From the Compact Disc edition.
