    What is the greatest scientific idea of all?Because science has so dramatically altered how we live and how we think about ourselves, the answer may well be the very idea of science itself, because-just like science's most important achievements-it, too, needed to be thought about, perfected, and invented.

    Story

    Given the breadth of material this course covers I was expecting more insights into why a particular scientific ideas presented changed to world. Perhaps the course would be more interesting with a more capable and engaging presenter. I found the incessant pauses as well as references to future lectures annoying and made to discussion difficult to follow. In short, interesting material but boring presentation.
