"Discovering" is an experimental work. It attempts not merely to look at what scientists do but to get inside their minds to find out how, to see science as the imaginative endeavour of the people who do it. Using a fictional format, the author unveils the discovery process in action through the discussions of six characters who attend a colloquium to debate the multifaceted issues that lie at the core of scientific creativity.
