Description

Michael White's brilliantly absorbing new biography argues that Leonardo da Vinci was, through the scope of his investigations, his experimental method and his desire to push back the boundaries of knowledge, nothing less than 'The First Scientist'. Weaving this history of early scientific endeavour into the colourful story of Leonardo's personal life - the deprivations of his childhood, his homosexuality, his relationships with contemporaries from Machiavelli to Borgia - Leonardo Da Vinci: The First Scientist presents a thought-provoking study of the definitive amalgamation of art and science.
