about

In this pathbreaking book, a leading historian of science and medicine presents convincing evidence that Dutch commerce—not religion—inspired the rise of science in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Harold J. Cook taps vast archival evidence to show how commerce in the Dutch Golden Age changed citizens’ values and triggered the Scientific Revolution.
Harold J. Cook is director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine and professor at University College London. He lives in London.
