Book News Annotation:

Cohen (history of science, Harvard U.) reveals that science was an integral part of political life for four founding fathers, and tells the story of their scientific educations and how they employed their knowledge in shaping the political issues of the day. An introductory section discusses scientific analogy in political thought, and other chapters describe Jefferson's interest in natural science and Newton, Franklin's experiments and political career, and the Constitution as a Newtonian document. Includes b&w illustrations.
