The Scientific Revolution and the Origins of Modern Science

£5.49

Product description

Written with the non-scientist in mind, this guide to the Scientific Revolution does not dwell on the technical details of modern science but seeks to show the social, cultural and intellectual factors which shaped its development. This is a concise but wide-ranging account of all aspects of the Scientific Revolution from astronomy to zoology. The third edition has been thoroughly updated, and some sections revised and extended, to take into account the latest scholarship and research and new developments in historiography.

Book in good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound. Printed in 2008.
