Das Schauspiel Leben des Galilei wurde 1938/39 im Exil in Dänemark geschrieben. Die Zeitungen hatten die Nachricht von der Spaltung des Uran-Atoms durch den Physiker Otto Hahn und seine Mitarbeiter gebracht. »Das Leben des Galilei wird vermutlich neben der Heiligen Johanna der Schlachthöfe und dem Kaukasischen Kreidekreis und einigen Stücken Lyrik Brechts größten Anspruch auf Unsterblichkeit begründen.« W.

​The book records the essential discoveries of mathematical and computational scientists in chronological order, following the birth of ideas on the basis of prior ideas ad infinitum. The authors document the winding path of mathematical scholarship throughout history, and most importantly, the thought process of each individual that resulted in the mastery of their subject. The book implicitly addresses the nature and character of every scientist as one tries to understand their visible actions in both adverse and congenial environments. The authors hope that this will enable the reader to understand their mode of thinking, and perhaps even to emulate their virtues in life.
