The Last Lost World: Ice Ages, Human Origins, and the Invention of the Pleistocene

The Last Lost World: Ice Ages, Human Origins, and the Invention of the Pleistocene - Lydia V. Pyne, Stephen J. Pyne It took me a while to realize that this book wasn't about the development of the Ice Age and the evolving of homo sapiens, but, rather, a story about the development of man's idea about thinking about those things.

The story that we tell (the narrative) to explain our understanding has changed as our philosophy about how we think about science has changed.

If you are interested in the differences between logical positivism, positivism and other branches of schools of thought about the philosophy of science this book will interest you. I am, and the book held my interest, but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be about, and I would be well served to re-listen to it with my philosopher hat on instead of my scientist hat.
