Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new edition of this study provides a concise, balanced, and accessible guide to the most important aspects of the Scientific Revolution. John Henry takes into account the latest developments in this important aspect of European history.

Book News Annotation:

Henry (science studies unit, U. of Edinburgh, UK) surveys the historical literature of the origins and achievements of the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries. Although this is mostly just a survey work, he doesn't shy away from drawing conclusions or making arguments. He is largely sympathetic with many of newer "revisionist" historians who insist that there is less of clear demarcation between science and alchemy than has previously been supposed and who suggest that the empiricism might not have been quite as empirical as its practitioners claimed.
