Summary "This is a landmark in science writing. It resurrects from the vaults of neglect the polymath Jerome Cardano, a Milanese of the sixteenth century. Who is he? A gambler and blasphemer, inventor and chancer, plagued by demons and anxieties, astrologer to kings, emperors, and popes. This stubborn and unworldly man was the son of a lawyer and a brother keeper, but also a gifted physician and the unacknowledged discoverer of the mathematical foundations of quantum physics."--Dust jacket flap.
