Archetype "Renaissance man" Leonardo da Vinci is perhaps best remembered for his painting. But he was also a writer, anatomist, sculptor, architect and musician. Moreover, da Vinci was a mathematician, engineer, inventor, and scientist.
A harbinger of the emerging "Scientific Revolution" that began gaining momentum in the later sixteenth century, da Vinci's observational skills and inquisitive, questioning nature stand out in this selection excerpted from "The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci."
