Book review: Jildy Sauce

Jan 23, 2014

British culture blog Jildy Sauce publishes a review on the new Fritz Kahn monograph. Entitled “Nature imitates art”, the article states that “our understanding of nature is necessarily metaphorical. We can only understand the unknown through the known.” Fritz Kahn “takes the metaphorical, model-building mode of thinking that lies at the heart of science and uses it to raise a smile, provoke thought and (ultimately) aid unterstanding. … He sought to popularize science, his goal was to communicate his passion to the reader, to fire their enthusiasm for the subject. And he found a unique way of doing so.” The review concludes: “A beautiful book, full of thought provoking, fascinating images and laden with not a little humour.”
