[ARC] Why? What Makes Us Curious by Mario Livio


Leggi questo articolo in italiano

Curiosity brings us in learning more about what we do not know, and in being engaged by a good read. The author, extremely curious, focus the book on this characteristic.

The first two chapters are about two famous persons, known also for their curiosity, the former an artist who liked science, and the latter a scientist interested in art: Leonardo Da Vinci and Richard Feyman.

In the other chapter the author explores the concept of being curios, also with the help of neuroscience.

Overall I think the theme is interesting, but the style is varying: I liked some of the chapters, while I was not particularly catched by the interviews.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
