The Scientific Revolution of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries began the process that led to modern science, both building on and challenging the classical world's natural philosophies. This wide-ranging and accessible collection of seminal work by historians of the Scientific Revolution emphasises the interplay of the social, cultural and intellectual traditions of early modern Europe. Key themes include science and religion, scholars and craftsmen, scientific patronage, the occult sciences, and matter in motion.
A valuable resource for students and teachers of the history of science, this book can be used either alongside or independently of its companion volume.
