This Encyclopedia provides a saga of history of ideas, discovery and invention in the natural and mathematical sciences over 100 generations of great thinkers from Thales to Feyman. It blends the essential historical data (chronology, biographies, major background, political and economical events, etc.) together with science proper (principles, laws, experiments, observations, theories, equations, etc.). This encyclopedia tells the reader not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. In this treatise, I have drawn a map of science, technology and great ideas that is as accurate and complete as possible, yet sufficiently free from unessential details and sufficiently condensed as not to obstruct the general view.

The work spans the history and evolution of science up to 2005, including all technological, theoretical, and experimental milestones in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, earth and space sciences, cosmology etc. Included are also the social sciences, philosophy and historical and environmental events which impacted human life on earth.

  • Spanning about 100 generations of great thinkers from Thals to Feynman.
