Review of the book “Waves of Light”

The Dutchman Christian Huygens was one of the geniuses among the naturalists of the seventeenth century – perhaps even the only person who could stand the comparison with Isaac Newton. His important work falls on the same fields: mathematics, astronomy, physics, especially mechanics and optics. Famous and respected in his lifetime, his notoriety faded over the centuries. Author Hugh Aldorsey Williams, for example, rightly complains that Huygens has so far received little appreciation in general—even if not in his own country. Through his book “Waves of Light” he would like to do justice to Huygens’ importance in the invention of modern natural science.
