HAPPY NEW YEAR from the PNM family to all of our loyal listeners! We made it to 2015!
On this New Year’s Day show, PNM’er Bill Scanlon talks with Scott Trigg about science in medieval Islam. Scott earned a Masters Degree in Mathematics at UW-Madison, and is now pursuing his Ph.D in the history of science program at UW-Madison. Scott’s research focuses on the advanced scientific thought and methodology coming from Islamic society prior to the Renaissance from about the years 700 to 1300 CE.
