What is Light? A Historical Journey from Euclid to Feynman

Understanding how light behaves is relatively easy. But what exactly is light? A wave? A particle? An emanation from God? Or a quantum excitation in a field? This is a question which has exercised some of the greatest minds of Science. Come on a journey from Euclid to Galileo and Newton; Faraday, Maxwell and Hertz; then on to Einstein’s Special... [More]
