This non-traditional introduction to basic ideas of physics, emphasises logical development of ideas without getting bogged down in mathematical derivations/applications. It conveys the ever-present excitement of physics dating back to Greek origins of Western thought. Emphasis is placed on orgins, meanings and significance of the concepts of physics. The historical approach is used as an aid in the presentation, but not over-developed so that the physical ideas are always dominant.
