Lost Discoveries

Shashi Tharoor has a “review”: of the book “Lost Discoveries”:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0684837188/jksobservat-20 by Dick Teresi, which studies the ancient non-Western foundations of modern science. In this article Tharoor writes about the sciences in which our ancestors excelled. These include planetary astronomy, chemistry, physics, steel making, printing and paper making, and ship building.

  1. Great post. Are you having problems pinging? I’m not picking-up your updates through blogrolling.com

  2. Niraj, This is the error in my activity log
    Ping ‘http://rpc.weblogs.com/RPC2’ failed: HTTP error: 500 read timeout
    It has been failing for the past few days. Do I need to do anything

  3. No, the problem it is at their end. It has happened to me, too. You seem fine now. Just double-checking!
