Our World of Light and Color
Throughout history, the knowledge and culture of each civilization has been expressed through its science, its literature, and its arts. To fully appreciate the beauty of our natural world, we should appreciate and understand both the scientific and the artistic interpretations. The physicist’s sunset, the poet’s sunset, and the artist’s sunset are complementary to each other. The main purpose of this book is to expand our view of the world around us by helping to develop an understanding of the science of light.
