Product description

Review

[Dear] throws interesting light on the changing criteria used to evaluate natural knowledge, especially the increasing emphasis on experiment. . . . As a full and accurate account of such matters, this book is the best available, and I would recommend it to anyone.---Michael Hunter, Nature

Bibliography, index and footnotes of the booklet are exceptionally comprehensive.---Silke G¨obel, Zentralblatt MATH

""Succinct, well-organized, and clearly written, this is an excellent account of the intellectual transformation of our understanding of the natural world between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.""—Paula Findlen, Stanford University

""This book is a clear first choice for students and teachers. Incorporating cutting-edge scholarship, it matches breadth of thematic coverage with clarity of exposition and takes the reader gently but firmly through the field.""—Simon Ditchfield, University of York
