A combination of chaos theory and complexity rolled into a study of history. Little changes in variables create vast changes in effect & we never really know in advance how the effects self organize until long after the fact.
The bizarre connections of random events yielding profound discoveries. A must see for.........people like me? I guess I'm a geek, but I loved this series!! James Burke does a masterful job as narrator: drawing you in and holding your attention.
This series is amazing. James Burke tells the story of human scientific history through an intriguing and engrossing narrative. every kid should watch these with their parents, it is such a great thing to share wonder
